Default BES Cluster

The best practice that I can think if is to create a manual fail over. Basically two BES Servers set up the EXACT same on to different servers. One currently running all services, while the other has the services disabled. So in the event BB01 goes down, all you need to do is stop it's services and Start the Services on BB02... That's my Cluster/fail over setup .. Anybody know of anything better?

BES is not a cluster capable application therefore if something happens to BES the Windows cluster will not automatically failover.

You can still run BES in a Windows Cluster and perform switchover manually. For other DR scenario perform a search, numerous scenario has been discussed in this forum.

Yes, if both servers use the same database. Otherwise no.

Default SQL is the trick

Well the two BES approach was great when SQL didn't play such a large role, I can build a BES in 1 hour if that .. getting the SQL replicated and not having users run another activation is the goal ..

Everyone has a slightly different version of DR. I'm going for HA now ..
