Post Dual ML110 G6 Servers Mirroring ESXI 4.1
Hi Newbie Question
(Sorry - I posted this earlier but I think it was in the wrong section I hope this is right)

I work in IT on Microsoft servers but I'm very new to ESXI, today (30-Oct-2010) for the very first time I installed ESXI 4.1 on my HP ML110 G6 Single SATA drive (non RAIDed) server. I am hoping someone can help me answer this question or if it's at all possible and what I will need to do if it is possible. My plan is to have test LAB of x2 HP ML110 G6 servers using single SATA HD running 3 MS OS's on each server, that will mirror each other over the network for fault tolerance, i.e if the physical HD in one of servers fails the other ML110 G6 will automatically kick in or take over so the users on the network will not notice that the other server has failed.

My Current Setup:
x2 HP ML110 G6 (Each Server Is Physically Identical)
x2 Server 2008 R2 x64 OS
x1 Server 2003 IIS Web Server x86 OS
x1 2.3Ghz Quad Core CPU
x4 2GB RAM = 8GB RAM Total
x4 250GB SATA HD (Non RAID)
x1 Freecom External USB DVD-ROM-RW drive
x1 BIOS Hard Drive Configuration set to ACHI
Couldn’t get ESXI to work when set to RAID

x1 Latest BIOS installed today (30-Oct-2010) with extended x64,

Is it possible to mirror the live environment on a single SATA HD of one ESXI 4.1 server to another identical redundant server so if the primary server fails the second server automaticlly takes over and visa-versa.

Thanks in advanced

Trevor
