    Hi All

    Can anyone tell me why Server 2003 Standard Edition has a cluster administrator in the Admin Tools if this feature is exclusive to Enterprise edition?

    Im guessing this would be because, you can use it to administer another cluster? so in this case you cant use it on standard, but if you have an enterprise cluster on the network you can administer it remotely.

    of course, theres also the advertising benefit. you own standard, and you see the cluster admin, do some research and discover that is exactly the solution you need. You then try to implement it using the admin tool and it tells you you need enterprise. you now know you want it, so you go and buy the enterprise edition.
