Add a new node to an existing cluster


Hi experts,

We have the current configuration, a cluster environment in which both nodes are configured to support SAP and/or SQL

We are trying to add a third node to the cluster, that will be configured only to support SQL (SAP can only run on the
existing nodes, SQL can run on any node)

This new configuration would mean that in the event of a failure we can move the SQL recourse to the new node, leaving SAP to run on the existing node configured with SAP.

This would still produce the requirements in protecting the resourse from being over utilised on a single node.

Could you please confirm us if this configuration can be made?

As additional info: We have Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition x64 in our cluster nodes.

Is there any special configuration to include a third cluster node only in SQL Group of our SAP Cluster ERP?

Many thanks in advance,
