I have a 4 node cluster managed by Microsoft Failover Cluster Manager (version 6.1). When I view the summary of my cluster I see that that current owner is node 4. I want to change the current owner to either node 1, 2 or 3. How do I do this using the Microsoft Failover Cluster Manager?

you can do this directly via PS / cluster.exe:

PS:
Move-ClusterGroup GroupName -Node newnode

Cluster:

cluster group "cluster group" /move:node-name

Hope that helps.
