We are a SQL 2008 std 64 bit on windows 2008 enterprise 64 bit shop and use
two node active passive clustering.  Currently our heartbeat network is a
switch.  Since it is only a two-node cluster, we are thinking about using a
crossover cable instead to free up the switch for something else.  All the ip
address scheme will remain the same and no work is needed.  I like to know if
there is a problem that I don't see.
