Related: 4 Failover Clustering Hassles and How to Avoid Them One of the first things you’ll be working with is Failover Cluster Manager, the new interface for managing a cluster.
With this tool, you’ll be managing groups and resources as well as performing some troubleshooting, which I’ll explain as I go along.
There are some new event channels for failover clustering to help with troubleshooting. Note that the events are specific to the node you're on.
Knowing the purpose of each event channel can help you find the errors more quickly, which in turn will help you troubleshoot the problem more quickly.
In the case of an IP-Less DAG, you will see some warnings as below and we’ll go through the Storage and System Configuration warnings.
First, let’s provide a bit of background on IP-Less clusters.
These are simpler to set up than the the traditional cluster as they don’t require any AD permissions or cluster IPs but are only available in Exchange 2013 SP1 and Server 2012 R2 or later.
Failover Cluster Manager can be accessed from the Start menu and Administrative Tools.
You’re probably familiar with the System event log.
