This topic provides sources of additional information about installing and upgrading on cluster nodes.

  • Microsoft supports only complete server cluster systems that are compatible with the Windows Server 2003 family. Confirm that your entire cluster solution is compatible with products in the Windows Server 2003 family by clicking the appropriate link in Support resources.

  • For the most recent information on compatible and certified applications for products in the Windows Server 2003 family, see the software compatibility section of the Microsoft Web site.

  • To better ensure high availability, check for enhancements and updates to Windows software and other Microsoft software. See Windows Update at the Microsoft Web site.

  • For additional information about deploying clustering, see "Planning Server Deployments" at the Microsoft Windows Server System Web site.

  • For additional general information about clustering and the Windows Deployment and Resource Kits, which provide technical background information on products in the Windows Server 2003 family, see the following:

  • Microsoft TechNet is a service that contains resources for Information Technology (IT) professionals. This includes access to white papers and articles about clustering written by support professionals at Microsoft, career and industry information, discussion groups, technical feedback, and software. For more information, see TechNet at the Microsoft Web site.

  • The Information Technology Infrastructure Library Web site (ITIL) Web site provides guidance for Information Technology professionals and includes detailed information regarding high availability. The following is an excerpt from the site: "ITIL consists of a series of books giving guidance on the provision of quality IT services, and on the accommodation and environmental facilities needed to support information technology."
