Microosft Clustering on 64BIT Guests with ESX server 3.5???

Jump to solution

Hi there,

As I understand in Version 3.01 VMware states within a Microsoft Clustering Best Practices guide that 64 Bit Enterprise Guests are cannot be used.

Is this still the case for ESX Server 3.5 update 1????? Has anybody tried expirementing with this at all? I'm looking at a N+1 Physical to Virtual SQL 2005 Cluster with 64 BIT Guest Operating systems and wonder if any one else has anything further to share in this???

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Peacey
