Hi Jeff,

You can use a NAS device using the ISCSI Initatator as long as the snap server has ISCSI Target software. However if this is to be a heavily used server I would recommend against this unless it's on it's own Gigabit or better LAN.
HP has a MSA 500 with Direct Attached Storage ( DAS ) which is low cost and supports clustering. If you already have the servers that you want to use, take a look at the HP MSA 1500, that is what I am using in our QA IT Staging lab and I am very happy with it.

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange 2003 Cluster Question

Please direct me to the correct forum if know one can answer this.

I need to set up a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise cluster
(2node) with Exchange 2003 Enterprise. I've done a lot of research and
found much useful information pertaining to set up, but not much in the
storage arena. My question is can I use a NAS device for the quorum
data, such as a Snap Server that is attached to my LAN (via ethernet) or
do I need to have a SCSI Storage device with fiber connectivity between
servers and storage?

Thanks a lot.
