AlwaysOn Availability Setup

    Question

  • I have a windows 2012 standard 2 node failover cluster with 2 sql instances on it.

    Node A --> Instance X --> Database "Test"

    Node B --> Instance Y

    I am configuring AlwaysOn for database "Test" on Instance X with replica instance as Instance Y. I get an error "Note: This is a Failover Cluster Instance. Failover Cluster Instances do not support AlwaysOn automatic failover" on the specify Replica Page".

    I am not able to complete my configuration.

  • SQL Server Failover Cluster Instances (FCIs) do not support automatic failover by availability groups, so any availability replica that is hosted by an FCI can only be configured for manual failover.
