Has anyone implemented SQL Server log shipping in a clustered environment? Are there any issues or things to consider when implementing this scenario?

In general, log shipping works same way whether SQL server is clustered or not. Only thing you need to use windowsclustername\Share when you copy your logs instead of specifying node names e.g. nodel1\share or node22\share so it works regardless what node your SQL serve is running.

+1. Nice pointer on the clustername\share. – StanleyJohns Apr 11 '12 at 19:57
