We have created a PCI environment with 2 x SQL servers (2014) and 2 x IIS servers (Server 2014) as a start. This is a Hyper-V two Host setup. We are configured with shared storage and shared configuration for IIS and when we fail over we see the mounted drives move to the other server just as it should. What is failing for us is the start of the IIS service side of things. If i start it manually it works great. If i reboot this server and the other comes online and a start its IIS service then all is good. But i have to manually start it.
I though i understood that the "VM Monitoring" tool would be what I needed to get IIS running, i have indeed configured it to run the "World Wide Web Publishing Service" and also as a test to the "PrintSpooler" on both IIS servers. The service never gets started. If stop the print spooler it never gets restarted.
The first thing i would like to know is how to troubleshoot what is going on and where to look. The second thing i would like is to get the IIS service going on failover.
