Hi Pratap,

I have found a very detailed guide on clustering setup with screenshots, it also includes guide for "Failover clustering" and also how to create "Windows 2008 Cluster" environment:

Hi Venkat,

Thanks for your reply......i have one more doubt.....
OS : Windows server 2008 R2 enterprise edition
SQl server : SQL Server 2008 standard edition

so in this case, is it supports sql server clustering on Windows server 2008 R2 clustering.
Please help me .........

Regards,
Prathap.

Hey Prat,

Your OS and your version of SQL Server both support fail over clustering.

If you want more details about clustering support please refer to this documentation.
