    Question Unanswered: Failover configuration

    I have 4 servers, the first two are web app and load balanced the second two are to be configured for failover. Let us call them SvrA and SvrB. SvrA will have active SQL (2000EE) and passive Content (large directory of courses offered) SvrB will have passive SQL(2000EE) and active Content. Both SvrA and SvrB will be connected to a redundant SCSI 18 drive Drive bay (cheap SAN) which will be configured with a) mirrored OS drives, b) a RAID 5 partition for SQL and c) a RAID 5 partition for the content folders.

    SvrA & SvrB will be quad processor machines. EE license for 4 processors as 2nd svr is failover for SQL.

    My concern is the failover set up for the content portion, or is it the failure of the server that causes the failover? This is quite confusing to me.

    Any thoughts would be most helpful.

    It's the failure of the server. Clustering provides server redundancy.
