Hi,

i have to install SQL 2012 Ent Edition 2 node with availability group options. Please guide me for following points.

Do i have to install SQL as a failover node or will a regular install (single instance).

What about storage location, in case of cluster and qourum we have to used SAN as shared location for both node.

What about SQL 2012 availability group, should i have to use local drive like D: on each node seperately.

Please guide thanks.

It needs to be a Windows cluster, but not a SQL Failover Cluster Instance. Storage should not be shared by the 2 standalone instances.
