How To Build a Windows Cluster with Virtual PC and iSCSI – Part III

posted in iSCSI |

On the IP Address screen we need to configure the IP address that will be used solely for administrative access to the cluster. Any additional services such as SQL Server or IIS will need to have their own dedicated IP address assigned. Enter the cluster IP address and click Next.

On the Cluster Service Account screen enter the username, password and domain details for the cluster service account that was created previously. This is the account that will be used to run the cluster service and it needs to be a domain account and a member of the local administrators group on all of the cluster nodes. Enter the details for the cluster service account and click Next

The Proposed Cluster Configuration screen provides a summary of the cluster configuration and gives you an opportunity to make any changes before the installation proceeds. If you click the Quorum button you can check to see which shared drive the Cluster Wizard has selected to use as the cluster quorum. I have seen cases where the wizard has not selected the drive that I wanted to use as the quorum. If this happens during your cluster setup you can change the drive at this point. Click OK to continue

If the Proposed Cluster Configuration is correct click Next to begin the installation

The Cluster Wizard begins the installation which should take a few minutes. During this process the wizard also writes out a log file which you can find in %SystemRoot%\System32\LogFiles\Cluster\ClCfgSrv.Log
