  • Hello,

    Yes, the failover cluster feature is not available in Windows Web Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 Standard. Try to get an upgrade of the operating system to Enterprise Edition.

    Hope this helps.

  • "Windows Standard" does NOT offer clustering. Its a Enterprise\Datacentre ONLY feature.

    However "SQL standard" offers Clustering (since SQL 2005)

    Hope that clears up the confusion.
