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.

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.

Please see the following:
Failover Cluster ManagerTechNet "No Auto Start" feature: http://bit.ly/1aJO7RT

This is for Server 2012 and up and found in Failover Cluster Manager.
