You can't put your log files on a local disk. Both the databases and the
Log files have to be on shared storage.

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange 2003 Cluster

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.
