SQL Server Clustering Failover Testing
Posted on 2012-04-11
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.
