CMS keeps failing over RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    Two node SCC cluster, Exchange 2007 SP2.

    Node1, Node1 and CMS name is Mail1. OS is Windows 2008 Server.

    We prefer to have our CMS's running on Node1 unless there is an issue, however I've noticed that the server keeps failing over to Node2. Then, out of hours, I fail it over to Node1....then a few days later it seems to fail over to Node2.

    I've checked the Event Log but I can't see much. Is there anything I should be looking for specifically in the App Log or the cluster.log? Any specific Event Id's etc?

    ANy help appreciated

  • Do you use a file share witness or a quorum drive? That can happen when Windows thinks it's missed a heartbeat or when it can't reach the quorum. The only thing I can suggest to you is to be sure your network is foolproof. Do you have a dedicated cluster heartbeat network?

  • Hello,


    Can you raise the log level for the application log to 'Expert' and see if there are any related error reports?
