Power Shell failovercluster module unavailable RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I've recently discovered that we have new server builds for Windows server 2008 R2 with failover cluster installed and the power shell failovercluster module is missing. Now I thought that this module would be availabe once failover cluster was installed in service manager. Import-Module FailoverClusters fails to find the module. I searched the filesystem and the FailoverCluster.psd1 files isn't anywhere to be found.

  • Does this work:

    launch as an Administrator and load ALL of your PowerShell modules automatically by selecting: Start à Administrator Tools à Windows PowerShell Modules....  this is working for me.

  • I'm loading powershell as and Administrator. I'm telling you that it's not on the server. If failover cluster is installed where's the module?

    get-module -list

    ModuleType Name                      ExportedCommands
    ---------- ----                      ----------------
    Manifest   BitsTransfer              {}
    Manifest   PSDiagnostics             {Enable-PSTrace, Enable-WSManTrace, Start-Trace, Disable-PSWSManCombined...

  • Using process monitor on my machine I see:

    ReadFile = C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules\FailoverClusters\FailoverClusters.psd1

    Can you verify in add features wizard, you have "Failover Clustering tools" (Installed)?

  • Disregard. I was looking at a NON R2 server.
