Evict node from hyper-v 2008 R2 cluster
Posted on 2013-12-28
I am curious if any of you have seen this scenario before.
We had a cluster of two nodes. Hyperv1 and Hyperv2. Both 2008 R2. They all share a witness disk and a CSV volume.
Then we install two new nodes 3 and 4 into the cluster, 2008 R2. We move over VMs to Hyperv 3 and 4. We then evict Hyperv2.
Now we would like to evict Hyperv1 and make 3 and 4 the only two. However when pausing or shutting down/restarting 1 the CSV goes down. It seems its somehow master/owner of the cluster and the cluster IP, Can this and how be moved over?
What would happen if we do a evict, will the cluster IP and CSV ownership be moved over or is that risky?
Appreciate any help,
