Hello experts,

i created my first failovercluster with hyper-v.
i thought, this is just some kind of a container for VMs to switch from one node to the other.
But i noticed, that an additional IP address has been assigned to the cluster. i mean not to the VM i created in this cluster, but to the cluster itself.

so i have these IPs
x.1 NIC on node1.cluster.local
x.2 NIC on node2.cluster.local
x.10 mrbusi.cluster.local
x.50 testvm

can anybody explain to me, what this additional IP is for?

many thanks
