Validate and Create Windows Cluster
In this blog i am going to create windows cluster for my AlwaysOn High Availability Group configuration.
I have already enabled and installed failover cluster on all recommended servers. FailOver Cluster
Step2 : This will open “Create Cluster Wizard”.
Step4 : On the “Validation Warning” click on “Yes. When I Click Next, run configuration validation tests, and then return to the process of creating the cluster” this option will validates the clustering processes available on all server.
Step6 : Confirm testing and click on “Next”.
Step7 : See the list of test validating.
Step8: Confirm testing and click on “Finish”.
Step9 : After completion of validating it will come back to “Create Cluster Wizard”.
Now give a name to your cluster. Here i am configuring cluster for availability group so i have created “AGTesting”.
Give any unassigned IP Address from your domain and click on “Next”.
Step10 : This window show you the details of your clustering like ClusterName, List of Failover servers and Cluster IP Address.
Step11 : See message “You have successfully completed create cluster wizard”.
If you want to see a creation report in detail then click on “View Report…” else click on finish to exit the wizard.
Step12 : Now check your cluster environment under ServerManager.
Here you can add or remove cluster node, configure service, configure applications etc…
Thanks & Regards,
