  • With CCR, the only kind of cluster I would recommend in Exchange 2007, there is no active-active cluster.

    In Exchange 2010 you can have that because databases can be mounted on any server in the DAG.

    Active-Active Clustering – This has proven to be very difficult to use and support.

  • Typically, there is no need for more than one passive node in the cluster for each active node in the cluster. As a result, a configuration of one active node and one passive node is preferred over configurations with one active node and multiple passive nodes. When using a single node SCC, you can use either a shared storage quorum, or a Majority Node Set quorum. Although single-node SCCs are supported, they are not considered to be a high availability solution because no redundancy exists within the cluster. For more info, see this document. Hope helps.
