Hello,

I just got my sql 2012 high availability group setup and it seems to be working fine; however in testing, it does not automatically failover like I thought it would.  I'm testing this by stopping sql services on one server and seeing if it fails over to the other server, which it does not.  I have synchronous commit on both servers as well as automatic failover set to automatic.

Am I missing something?

Thanks,
