Hi,
I have a 2 node (A/B) SQL server cluster on SQL 2008 R2 & windows 2008.

Node A have default instance configured while Node B got Instance "Test". I need to carry a failover test from A to B (Default + Test instance) and then B to A  (Default + Test instance) .

I need to make sure all underlying config is setup properly before carrying these failover tests so  I am looking for info on 2 things :

1. How to check cluster for failover &
2. How to carry failover

A word doc or blog link preferred than MSDN pages.

Thanks
