Appendix A (Server Clusters: Remote Setup, Unattended Installations and Image-based Installations)

Updated: January 1, 2003

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 with SP1

This is a sample sysprep.inf file that can be used for unattended installation of a server cluster. By using this configuration file, Mini-Setup will create a cluster called SV-CLUSTER with one node SV-NODE1, will assign drive letters to shared storage drives and create a cluster file share called SVFileShare.

All computer names, cluster name, user data, passwords and IP addresses need to be replaced with real ones before you can use this file.
