Active Active Install Docs?I have used Brad’s install docs for the Active Passive installation and found them to be a great help. Are there any install docs or articles out there that outline the Active Active installation. I know its basically two Active Passive installs; one for default instance and one for a named instance, and there needs to be two separate disks (1 for each node). I just really want to ensure I am doing this correctly. Thanks in advance.
I haven’t put together such does, but as you said, you essentially do the same thing, except on another node. Perhaps anyone who has done this might be able to offer some specific tips. —————————–

Hi ya,<br /><br />I don’t have any ‘publish quality’ docs, but have set up a few active-active clusters…<br /><br />In our clusters we have<br />- two named instances one running by default on each node<br />- a quorum volume also has MSDTC on it (Q)<br />- two volumes for instance SQL1 (E: and L<img src=’/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif’ alt=’‘ /><br />- two volumes for instance SQL2 (F: and M<img src=’/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif’ alt=’‘ /><br /><br />I followed Brad’s documents for most of my install<br /><br />like Brad said the documents he produced are pretty close other than having to split up the shared disk into more separate physical volumes, and installing sql twice<br /><br />Cheers<br />Twan
Thanks. That is pretty much the consensus on all the articles and books I referenced about Clustering.
