Failover without the luxury of MSCS?


Failover without the luxury of MSCS?

I have two servers separated by a slow(ish) WAN link. Is there anyway (using SQL transactional replication) of creating a robust SIM environment?

I want to get my clients to send SNMP traps to both SIM servers but in the event of a failure I want the other to have all the history.

I've read c02049572.pdf white paper - "Automation of two HP Systems Insight Manager servers to provide Failover Event Handling" but this only gets me half way there.

c02049349.pdf "Deploying HP SIM 6x or greater on MSCS clusters on Windows 2003 with SQL Server 2005" looks interesting but I can do this in my environment. Does anyone have any suggestions?
