Powershell Script to alert when cluster node failover from active to passive node
Posted on 2016-09-26
On Windows 2012 R2, I have a two-node cluster that I need to monitor using Powershell. If I am not always paying attention, I could have a failover go unnoticed for days. Just wondering if anyone has a script that will catch these failovers and notify me via email.
Example: say that NodeA is the active node and NodeB the passive node, I need to know when the resources have moved to the passive node making it the new active node. So the notification would say something like this: NodeB is now the active node [in cluster] for the last 2 hours and 15minutes, etc. Thanks in advance!
