I am not completely clear with what you want to achieve & whether you are on right forum .. can u explain following

1. What cluster software you intend to use ?  Veritas Cluster or Microsoft cluster ?

2. what is the OS version ?

3. what application you want to bring in cluster ? is it SQL DB or something else ?

4. Do you intend to cluster Backup Exec ? I am not sure if this is possible, check out backup exec forums
