change possible nodes of cluster role RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a 2 node windows failover cluster on windows server 2012r2 (NOT a hyperv cluster).

    I am interested in changing a specific role to only be able to run on a specific node (I know that in a 2 node cluster this might not make a lot of sense but it is suppose to be a temporary thing)

    however, using the GUI I am only able to view and change the preferred nodes and I interested in changing the possible nodes. strangely, I was unable to find a answer that worked on google. 

    anyone able to assist me please? (GUI or\and powershell are both good options)

  • Hi Stanley,

    Did you try changing the possible owner nodes by using PowerShell? You can make use of the Set-ClusterOwnerNode cmdlet.

    Example:

    Get-ClusterResource -Name "Cluster Disk 1" | Set-ClusterOwnerNode -Owners Node2
    (This sets the possible owner for the Cluster Disk 1 on the local cluster to node 2)

    Best regards,
    Leon

  • Hi,

    You should be able to change the possible owners for a resource on 2012 R2 via the 'Advanced Policies' tab of the cluster resource properties.

    Can I ask what role/resource you are trying to apply this to?  i.e. disk, SQL etc?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    generic service.
