Can I have Single-Node cluster on 2003?

    Is it possible to use the -localquorum disk on windows 2003 or similar to run up a cluster with only a single-node on a HP EVA SAN.

    We are lite on for hardware and i wanted to bring up a clustered sql2000 virtual server as on a single node, then add another node later on.

    Any comments appreciated.

    It is only good for test purpose but will not provide you any redundancy if that node fails as quorum is local and not on shared disk.

    Thanks for the reply, I am working out a way to bring a PRODUCTION SQL cluster online as a single node cluster.
    Prove the data migration (SAP Enterprise Portal Version 5) from an existing 2000 operating system cluster works and THEN break off a node from the existing cluster, rebuild as 2003 o/s and then join to the NEW 2003 SQL virtual cluster (SAP Enterprise Portal Version EP6).

    I just dont have the hardware to replicate both clusters with fibre.

    Has anyone brought up SQL2000 on a single node 2003 cluster? or am i bleeding edge.

    thanks for the feedback much appreciated, will also post on forum flagged by Argyle.
