The following are the general/high-level steps that one could follow to install UCM in a Microsoft (MS) Windows Cluster.

Note that UCM is known to be fairly compatible with Active/Passive (failover) MS Windows Cluster (UCM is not designed, integrated, or certified for this use). Some customers have also been able to make it work in Active/Active clustering (UCM is not designed, integrated, certified, or supported for this use) with the use of High Availability direct-attached (via fibre or SCSI) SAN solutions which have the capability of providing the exact "same view" of the data to each member cluster node. "Same view" meaning (not limited to): The ability for all nodes to see the same exact time/date stamp on files and directories, perform file and directory renames, deletes, view file contents, directory contents, etc... that are seen by all cluster nodes at the same time/as the same exact data.

Note that a typical SAN solution does not usually provide this "same view" to all MS Windows member cluster nodes.

If you want to instead install a UCM Cluster on regular Windows servers, please follow <Note 758916.1> "How to Set Up a Two Node Cluster for Content Server on Microsoft Windows".
