[PVE-User] Creating Windows Cluster (MSCS) on Proxmox

I have created a nice video on how to create a MSCS cluster on Proxmox if anyone is interested.

and the last 5 or 6 articles on wanfuse.blogspot.com cover this installation and combine it with KVM/Proxmox2.0/ISCSI/ZFS/Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 cluster
one small warning bug remains with this setup due to the ISCSI implementation not supporting 
scsi_id/scsi_sn and vpd 83 type 8h  which generates a warning to that effect during the cluster verification...a fix is in the works.
enjoy the reading, no strings attached whatsoever, and your results may vary and I am not responsable for any data loss ...make a good backup before trying this setup...you have been warned!!!!

This is probably because vmbr0 is binded to eth0.

Proxmox builds the cluster on vmbr0, i don't know why.

Edit manually your /etc/network/interfaces and appoint vmbr0 to eth3
which is what you want if i got it right. Then reboot (or restart

Then destroy and build your cluster again, and you will have it on eth3.

Here is a sample of config doing this:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet static
    bridge_ports eth3
    bridge_stp off
    bridge_fd 0

auto vmbr1
iface vmbr1 inet static
    address      *****
    gateway           *** GW ***
    bridge_ports eth0
    bridge_stp off
    bridge_fd 0

auto vmbr2
iface vmbr2 inet static
    address     *************
    bridge_ports eth2
    bridge_stp off
    bridge_fd 0

Put your real values to ***** (i assume your default gateway is the
WAN router

Keep a backup of the config file just in case...
