I have a Windows cluster with two nodes. I am trying to make Fail Over Cluster using SQL Server 2012.
On both nodes there is 2 TB storage available which I can access as:
So basically a 2 TB SAN is mapped on both nodes as above.
My questions is, can I make Fail Over Cluster with one disk only and all data will be saved in it? Or it is better to use a separate drive for each. If you take a look at the screenshot below, you will get an idea as to what I am talking about. As you can see we are using two drives Z and X for different options.
Since in this case I only have one drive, can I use this for all these options?
Secondly MSDTC is not installed yet (which I think is also required to make Fail Over Cluster) so I wanted to know shall I install MSDTC too on same drive as mentioned above?
