How to Prevent VM Failover on Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V Failover Cluster

I am looking for a way to prevent a VM on Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V Failover Clustering from Failing over.  I just want the machine to shut down even if its dirty.  I am going to be moving our exchange 2010 DAG over to the Hyper-V Failover cluster I am going to be the two VM's on each of the node's what I was reading is that it is best to have it just shut down not failover but I cant seem to find the correct option to prevent this in the settings.  thanks in advance.

Usually, the best thing, is just stop the Cluster service on the Hyper-V host and that will prevent any failover.

There are going to be mutiple VM's on the Hyper-V host which I want to have the ability to fail over I just wanted the on VM which is the DAG not to have the ability to fail-over

I think the only way to do this, is move the VM from the clustered Hyper-V setup to a non-clustered Hyper-V server.
