cluster service disabled


  • Hi all,

    If I installed the failover-clustering feature through server manager, will the cluster server start?
    I ckecked that the cluster service is disabled.

    ?Is this supposed to be?

  • Yes, this is the expected behavior. After installing the failover-clustering role, you then need to configure the server as a cluster using the Failover Cluster Management GUI, which should now be found in your Administrative Tools list.

    Hope this helps.
