    Unanswered: Shared SCSI setup...

    Ok, got an assignment from my boss.. Need shared storage for a 2 node cluster, with main focus on MSSQL DB Failover. We won't be storing alot of data, speed it not really an issue, just availability..

    As far as I know I need 2 SCSI cards, 1 for each node. Node1 has to have ID7 and Node2 ID6 (for example)

    this is it.. what's next? what's the best way to configure all this? Do I need a special box for all hard drives to be with certain controller?

    I was thinking to link up like this

    terminator
    |
    Node1
    |
    |
    Disk
    |
    |
    Node2
    |
    terminator

    But I wanted to run some sort of RAID on disk, mirroring is fine.. Anyone can suggest me what parts I should get for this setup? my servers don't have 64bit PCI too

    Not sure in detail (we have HW vendors doing the HW stuff), but at a minimum you need some SAN-aware components on both boxes.
