Similar to the hash table, we have to get each object out of the array that we created.We do this by piping the list into a For Each-Object cmdlet.This goal can be achieved provided at least one alternate physical path is available.
The physical network adapters are exposed at the IP layer on each node.
The NETFT driver transfers packets (cluster communications) on the virtual adapter by tunneling through the best available route in its internal routing table (Figure 5).
Figure 8 shows an example of this in the cluster log.
Note: You can see in Figure 8 that the endpoint pairs consist of both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
The Windows Server 2008 Failover Clustering feature provides high availability for services and applications.
To ensure applications and services remain highly available, it is imperative the cluster service running on each node in the cluster function at the highest level possible., I wrote about how I used Powershell to manage failing over clusters.At work, we have now implemented that script in our patching process and it has reduced our patching time significantly. A validation step was needed to ensure that the script was doing what was expected.The sections that follow discuss Windows Server 2008 Failover Clustering networking features, functionality and recommended processes for the proper configuration and implementation of network connectivity within a cluster.Windows Server 2008 Failover Clustering introduces new networking capabilities that are a major shift away from the way things have been done in legacy clusters (Windows 200003 and NT 4.0).Whereas the legacy cluster network driver was listed as a Non-Plug and Play Driver, the new fault tolerant adapter actually appears as a network adapter when hidden devices are displayed in the Device Manager snap-in (Figure 1).
