If you watched the demonstration blogcast of Virtual Server 2005 R2 I posted up at the weekend, yesterday, I ripped the environment apart to build it again from scratch so you can see how I built it.
The last part of this mini series is where we setup the networking on the Virtual Machine guest we are making highly available through host clustering. In my scenario, I deviate from the whitepaper on host clustering as the network cards between my two hosts are different. In the whitepaper, you place the .vnc file for the network on the shared drive. I also show you once more what happens during unplanned downtime by power-cycling one of the nodes in the cluster.
So that’s all you need to know about host based clustering using Virtual Server 2005 R2 in conjunction with Windows Server 2003 Clustering Services. Have fun, and please let me know if you found this useful!
