I used to have 2 nodes cluster in a windows 2008 environment. We configured DHCP and Print services as part of the clustered services. Then later we moved to VMWare and we virtualized 1 of the 2 servers leaving on the new environment a 1 node cluster. We
didn't see a reason to virtualize both nodes. Now I want to stop the failover service but my question is if the 2 services will continue to work (The DHCP and Print services) or I will need to migrate those 2 services to another server.
afaik, when the failover is stopped in a node, services or applications still run but this node will stop functioning in the cluster until the failover service is restarted. You may ask in
High Availability forum and conduct a test in test environment to make sure.
