Clustering Best Practice

Clustering best practice

Private Network:

  • Atleast 150 ms ping response time

  • Use TCPIP Only

  • No DNS, No default gateway,No wins

  • Static ip address

  • Disable Netbios

  • No NIC Teaming

Public Network:

  • Use atleast two DNS servers

  • Teaming is not rrecommended

  • If teaming is used confugure it after configuring clustering

Windows Level:

  • No password policies for cluster related account

  • Cluster account should have local administrative rights(not domain admins)

  • Server nodes should be at same service pack level

  • MSDTC must be installed (for sql clustering, not require for Exchange CCR)
