SQLServer 2008 cluster on Windows 2003 using VMWARE


  • We have a sql server 2008 custer on Wndows server 2003
    virtualized using VMWARE
    We are in the process of adding raw disks to the
    cluster. When these disks are added to the Virtual Machine, there is a
    possibility of storing the mapping file with either the virtual machine or a
    datastore on SAN(recommended).

    My question do we need separate datastores
    on the SAN to store mapping files for each raw disk, or can we use a single
    datastore on the SAN to store mapping files for all raw disks ?

  • Hi Gerard,

    I am trying to involve someone more familiar with this topic for a further look at this issue. Sometime delay might be expected from the job transferring. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
    Thank you for your understanding and support.

  • Hi,

    I think because this question more related to VMWare feature of datastore on SAN, I suggest that you ask this question to VMWare forums.
