Tutorial: Create SQL Cluster(FCI) on RHEL


In the Windows world, SQL Server integrates into Windows Server Failover Cluster (WSFC) natively, and we have a dedicated installation for SQL Server Cluster. However, on Linux, you need to install standalone SQL Server instance in the nodes first, and then configure the instance as a SQL Server cluster instance.

 

 

I use SQL Server 2019 with RHEL 8.x in this tutorial, but it is possible to use SQL Server 2017 in RHEL 7.x or RHEL 8 to configure FCI.
