Although this note describes the setup of DG4MSQL using a  Microsoft Cluster environment it is similar for all other gateways like Database Gateway for ODBC (=DG4ODBC), Database Gateway for Sybase (=DG4SYBS), Database Gateway for DRDA (=DG4DRDA) etc..
It is similar to any other gateway running on a Windows based cluster.

It assumes that you have already set up a MS Cluster with dedicated names/ip addresses for each cluster node, a virtual ip address/name for the cluster itself and now want to install, for example, DG4MSQL in this environment.

This note does not cover a basic installation including an explanation of setting up DG4MSQL.
