Re: Beware of Windows clusters
Your comment reminds me of another instance and I think you might get to the punch line before the end. We installed a system for a client where two windows servers sat side by side. One was a fail over for the other and, the fail over was configured with some wonderful software that mirrored important data to the fail over machine's hard drive so that if the first machine stopped responding, the fail over would take over with the latest data.
So imagine our horror when the client called to say both machines had failed. We looked carefully at the first machine that had died and it turned out that a system log file had grown to the point where windows just ceased up. Well someone had decided that the windows log files should be mirrored, so naturally the fail over server started up and discovered it too had a log file that was full.
