MSCS configuration questions

Dear Experts,

I want to do an MSCS HA test, following I have some questions need your help:

Since I have no professional servers, only three PCs are available

1. can I use two of them as two cluster nodes, and another one as shared storage?

2. can shared storage be accessed via windows shared folder like \\sapsrv01\common ? since I do not have dedicated strogare device.

3. 4 ethernet cards are obligatory, right? and two of them are used as heartbeat detection? those two ether ports can be connected directly via a Network cable without connecting to the switch?

Thank you so much for your kind help.

    Q1- I don't think so you can use PC's to do MSCS setup. You need license to setup MSCS cluster.

    Q2- You can access it via shared folder. But would not recommend it in real setup.

    Q3- You need 7 IP address to setup MSCS cluster. Check installation guide for more information.
