Step By Step Guide: Configuration of Microsoft Failover Cluster


Step By Step Guide: Configuration of Microsoft Failover Cluster


After configuration of shared storage, you can start the configuration of MS cluster.
Go to Failover Cluster Manager and invoke Create Cluster Wizard
Define some meaningful cluster name.



Add both nodes and Quorum disk, preferably 1GB in size.


Configure Distributive Transaction coordinator (MSDTC) by using Client Access point wizard


It will create a computer object in AD, sometimes you have to manually define the same.


For Sharepoint it is good to have configured MSDTC in such a manner. Accept the confirmation



Test your configuration by rebooting nodes one by one and verify the movement of cluster resources. You can also manually move cluster resources too.
