My Environment: Dell PowerVault 220S connected via SCSI to 2 Dell Poweredge 2950s. I have installed ESX 4i on each of the 2950s, and do NOT have VCenter. I will be using Windows Server 2003 Datacenter on each server for 3 installs, a SQLDEV, SQLTEST, and SQLPROD. They will each be clustered, so machine 1 will have a SQLTEST, and machine 2 will have SQLTEST-2. The same for the others.
My question: How many Disk Partitions will I need on the PowerVault to handle clustering? They will be 2-node clusters for each OS. I'd like to get away with 1 Partition for each of the Cluster components. But as I read, that may not be possible. I know I need 1 partition for MSDTC, 1 for Quorum, and 1 for DATA. I'm thinking I will need 3 Quorums, 3 MSDTC, and 1 Data. Is this correct? Or will I need 3 DATA also?
Many thanks for any input you can provide.
