So, is it just me, or does installing SQL 2000 SP3 on a Microsoft Cluster (Windows 2003 EE) actually lower the availablility of the databases? I've had two production-level clusters (one Win2K, one Win2K3) and neither has proven highly available. I don't think that SQL is at issue, here, but rather the underlying cluster service. I am not a database engineer. I am a Wintel Engineer who can install the cluster service in his sleep. Everything is a dream until we actually start using the cluster, when it becomes a nightmare. Somebody wake me up!
