    Has anybody been able to get QB to work on Microsoft Cluster? If so, are there any articles that outline a procedure. By the way, I can get QB to work on the client if QB iis open and in multi-user on the cluster server. If I close QB on the cluster server, QB continues to work until closed then it can’t be reopened until I start QB on the server again. The Client works in single user either way. Otherwise I get -100 error.
