Anyone running their MOSS 2007 environment in Hyper-V? If so, I've got a
few questions I'd like to ask....

- Are you running Hyper-V in a cluster?
- Are you clustering your virtual SQL Server?
- Are you attaching to fiber channel storage?

We are. Our answers to the three bullets would be no at this point, but
that's largely because our current usage does not require it.

Are you trying to spec out hardware, or drawing up a plan for management
approval, or something else?

More along the lines of technical requirements. We're good on hardware
(we have a few Dell PowerEdge R900s / 128 - 256gb of RAM). My questions
were in relation to:

- How many NICs do you need?
- How many fiber HBAs do you need?
- How is Hyper-V passing through the fiber channel disks from the host
to the guest?

Hyper-V is running  in a 3-node, Fault-tolerant application cluster (along with
some other applications) and hosts the WFE's, Query Server and Index Server.
This allows us to get some redundancy from the Index Server.

SQL Server 2008 is running in it's own two-node, active-active cluster, NOT

All machines are connected to the SAN using HBA's.

Are you clustering Hyper-V AND using NLB for the web front ends?
