Managing Failover Clustering with Windows PowerShell (Part 1)

To use Windows PowerShell to manage your failover cluster, you will first need to install the Failover Clustering feature using Server Manager, or the Failover Clustering Tools via the RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools).

I didn’t know what the module for Failover Clustering was called, so I ran the “get-module –listavailable” cmdlet to find out what it was called.

Next I imported the Failover Clustering module using the “import-module FailoverClusters” cmdlet.

In the next part of this series I will go into detail on getting help and validating a cluster configuration.
