The failover happens automatically from the active node to the passive
node in case of failure. You cannot leave the log files in a local hard
disk. The log files and DB should be in the clustered storage group. The
passive node when taking over the resources will need access to the log
files as well. Do a search on Exchange cluster in Knowledge base, you
will find some very good white papers on planning and installation.

Sorry if I am double posting but I got a reply saying that my email had
been rejected.

Good morning to all,

I have a few questions about an Exchange 2003 Cluster.  We are looking
into upgrading our current Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003. Right now we
only have one server, one site. For redundancy purposes we are
considering an Active/Passive cluster.

Could you please tell me a best practices for setting this up?  How will
the fail over occur if the active node goes down?

I am planning to have the log files reside on the server itself and have
a Fiber Raid Array for the DBs.  If the primary node fails how will the
stand by node handle the logs?

Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
