VMware Clustering vCenter Server 4 on MSCS

*NOTICE* As of July 16, 2010 – VMware KB1024051 – has been published stating that “VMware does not support third party clustering products.”  The instructions below should not be used for any production or supported environment.

VIOPS has a good document on how to cluster the vCenter services on MSCS.  Things have changed slightly from 2.5 and though most of the steps will be old news for some, there are a couple changes so be sure to review before proceeding with your Install/Upgrade projects.  It does have a nice section on upgrading existing clusters as well.

Get the document here.

One special note I would point out is running the “jointool.bat” for replicating roles at the end of your cluster config.
