XADM: Exchange Standard Edition should not be Installed on Cluster Aware System

Article ID: 174042

Article Last Modified on 10/26/2006



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q174042

SYMPTOMS

The Microsoft Exchange Server Standard Edition Setup program will allow you to point to a shared cluster drive on a Windows NT Enterprise Server running Microsoft Cluster Services. It will only install on the local node, but if the Server fails over, the information will be pulled to the other node and the Exchange Server installation will be destroyed.

CAUSE

The Microsoft Exchange Server Standard Edition is not a cluster aware application but the Server setup portion does not have the ability to prevent you from installing the software on the shared cluster drive.

Microsoft will not support any installation of the Exchange Server Standard Edition on a cluster aware system.

RESOLUTION

The Enterprise Edition of Exchange Server must be installed on the cluster aware system to take advantage of the Microsoft Cluster Services and prevent possible data corruption.
