Cluster installation doubt


I'm planning to install SAP R/3 4.7 with DB2 8 in a MSCS.

I'm reading the guide (SAP R/3 Enterprise ABAP on Windows: IBM DB2 Universal Database for UNIX and Windows Using SAP R/3 Enterprise Core 4.70, Service Release 1, SAP R/3 Extension Set 2.00 Document Version 1.00 – August 18, 2004) but I have one doubt.

In page 177 there's the following line:

On both nodes you install DB2 UDB for UNIX and Windows Version 8 [Page 85] on a local drive as a user with administration rights.

My doubt is the following, does the line is telling me that I need to install DB2 on a local disk of node A and in install DB" on a local disk of node B and not using a disk of the storage? If that's true, how does DB2 works with cluster? Does DB2 uses something like log shipping of MSSQL to perform the database replication or how does it work?

I hope someone can help me. Thanks in advanced.

Hi Wadih,

yes you are right. All databases were installed on the cluster disks.
