Install SQL Server 2008 R2 Cluster on Windows Server 2008 R2

Setting up and deploying Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 on Windows Server 2008 R2 though a simple task but it does require a lot of work and effort in delivering this solution. Great news! Microsoft has released iSCSI Target 3.3 software which now supports Windows Server 2008 R2 clustering. I have chosen to use the iSCSI target to mimic a SAN since its free 🙂 and simple to setup for the purpose of testing SQL clustering.
