Hi (I send one before but looklike it did not pass through)
  I have questions as below.
1) On production server win 2003 64 bits, I can not see Cluster by
ClusterAdmin, Quarum is the folder in C:\Drive, SAN is only shared drive, SQL
logon by local system account, Sql connect as (local) or ComputerName from
Management Studio. Get info from my boss, it was SQL server 2005 Ent
clustering on this server. What else should I check?
2) Get info that I need to add just only SQL Virtual server name and  IP
address to make it clustering. If item#1 is true, How? Any modification?

  In the case I found single instance, I will detach databases, uninstall
SQL server, make cluster, reinstall and attached databasesto shared disk  but
this scenario is beyond my knowledge.
This is new to me, please help.

Thanks
