SCOM 2007 SP1 Cluster Configurations
I was looking through the supported configuration document that came with the SP1 release candidate and it said this about clusters:-
The OpsMgr DB, the RMS and the Data Warehouse can all individually sit on a single Active Passive cluster but other server roles must not be installed on the cluster or nodes of the cluster.
This is disappointing as it means you still need a cluster for the database and another cluster for the RMS if you want full fault tolerance.
It then says that the OpsMge DB and the DW can be installed on an Active-Active cluster where they are installed on separate nodes. OK but that means that when one node of the cluster fails then both roles will be on one node which is then NOT a supported configuration.
The Product Group really need to get a grip on this one before SP1 is officially released. You should be able to run the database and the RMS on one cluster and they need to take out nonsense scenarios that anyone above 5 years old could spot are logically flawed.
The good news is that the ACS database can be clustered.
