Clustering?

    What's active-active and active-passive cluster? Is there some basic information as to how to setup a cluster out here? If yes, could somebody please share it this?

    It's my impression that, when you have active-active cluster, you have load-balancing aswell with this option? Is it true?

    Really appreciated some input on this.

    many thanks,
    Cali

    Regarding your question, big NO, Clustering is not for Load Balancing despite of what you have heard.

    Clustering is only for High Availabilty...

    Check "Failover Clustering " topic in BOOKS ONLINE...
