Join Ed Liberman for an in-depth discussion in this video Implementing a failover cluster, part of Windows Server 2012 R2: Implement Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery.
- [Instructor] Failover clustering is a great way…in Windows Server 2012 R2…to keep your systems highly available.…So here, I wanna go ahead and set up a failover cluster…using a couple of the servers in my environment.…I'm gonna use Member 3 and Member 4.…Now before we do, a couple things you need to know.…First of all, in another lesson,…we already set up some shared iSCSI storage.…And that is a requirement in order to be able to set up…the failover cluster.…
The second thing I wanna tell you is that…for each of these two servers, Member 3 and Member 4,…I've added an additional network interface,…and I've put them on a private connection…where they only talk to each other,…and gave them an IP address…to be able to have that communication.…That's so that you can have the node to node…dedicated communication between three and four.…So the first place I wanna go is to Member 3,…so let's jump there now.…
Here on the server manager,…the first thing that I would need to do…is install the failover clustering feature.…
