One more thing:

Is there a good tool that I can use to monitor the functional overview or health status of our cluster? Say the disk space is going down or performance is taking southerly direction I would like to be notified via email

My clustered exchange is running out of disk space on the disk that is
housing exch database. I called the SAN guys to increase/grow disk space
and instead of growing the LUN they created a new disk volume.

I was told that they couldn't grow the disk becoz our MS exchange
cluster is running on basic disk and if they try to grow disk the
cluster will be broken completely. I was given a new volume based on
these grounds.

Now I want to move all exch databases on to new volume...and bring up my
Exch up again.  Any step-by-step on how to accomplish these without
messing up nothing?

kindest regards.
