## Preparing the Servers

Preparing the Servers

Before you configure Server A and Server B, do the following:
1.  If necessary, perform any operating system shutdown procedure on the two servers, Server A and  Server B, you are going to use in the cluster, and then turn off the servers.
2.  If you have not done so, connect any shared external drive enclosures between both servers; then,  turn on the enclosures.
