need a question answered about hyper-v mutisite cluster
will be creating a mutisite cluster with hosts in 2 locations
will havea san in each location, with replication software to keep everything in sych
i would like to configure site failover manually (dont want to take chance of accidental failover)
if my primary site fails hou would i kick of the failover
where is the cluster manager installed, is it on both sites
is the cluster manger additional software  or can it be installed on any node of the cluster?
whats involved as far as failing over, is a one step procedure

What are you going to run to keep everything in sync? There are very few products that can do it as a true stretch cluster, and there are IP addressing issues as well. My guess is that you don't have all of the pieces of a true automated or single button site failover. If you do you should have a lot of hand holding from your vendors because it is not trivial.

In a Microsoft cluster, each node is monitoring cluster health so there isn't a particular node managing the cluster. The Cluster Management Console is only used for making configuration changes and can be run from Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2 full install (not Core).

Sorry about that. Best best is to talk to Double-Take sales engineer. You can also talk to SIOS www.steeleye.com , which also does stretch geoclustering.
