Hi,
I need help on the design consideration to develop a VB application to work in a Cluster (active/active). The application would consist of an NT service that will spawn activeX exe components based on a configuration.

Thank you,

regards,

One main thing that you need to remember regarding Microsoft's clustering technology is that it based on a "shared nothing" concept

the meaning is that in an active/active configuration you'd need to partition the work between the two active servers and have each server act as a backup for the other one.

Regarding other design consideration. you should probably provide some more details e.g. what are the fail-over times you need, how many cluster nodes, what application type are we taking about here etc.
