Handling a Failover Cluster Installation (64-bit)
SQL Server 2000
This topic applies only to SQL Server 2000 (64-bit).
When you install a Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 (64-bit) failover cluster, you must:
- Ensure that the operating system is installed properly and designed to support failover clustering. For more information about what to do before installing a failover cluster, see Before Installing Failover Clustering (64-bit).
- Consider whether the SQL Server tools, features, and components you want to use are supported with failover clustering. For more information, see Failover Clustering Support (64-bit).
- Consider whether failover clustering is dependent on the products you want to use. For more information, see Failover Clustering Dependencies (64-bit).
- Consider how to create a new failover cluster. For more information about creating a new failover cluster configuration, see Creating a Failover Cluster (64-bit).
