SQL Cluster on Windows 2012 R2 and SQL 2014 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, hopefully I've got the right forum.  I've been watching stuff from teched. I want to install SQL server, in cluster mode, on a failover cluster that has 4 physical nodes and a number of VM's, on each physical node.  

    All the clustering is done on 2012 R2. I want to leverage a two node SQL cluster, installed on CSVs.  To get the most "rapid" failover, I get the impression that I have to use shared VHDX files to house my database files and logs.  Is that correct?  On the second node of the SQL cluster, do I attach the same database files and logs that the SQL node on the first cluster node is "writing" to, using shared VHDX?

    Is there a document or video that fully explains installing the second node?

    thanks for any help!  mark
