When setting up a cluster for the purpose of failover do you only include in that cluster servers made by the same vendor or can you mix vendors?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

When setting up clustering for failover all hardware should be from the same vendor and they should be exactly the same. You don’t want to run into driver issues and support problems with multiple vendors. So keep it the same vendor and same hardware exactly to be on the safe side.
