  • Check this.


    You can configure Always ON in 2 scenario's:

    1.Cluster(Active/Passive) (Not support Automatic failover)
    2.Standalone servers(Support Automatic failover)

    1.Cluster (Active/Passive) Env Servers: (This is not for automatic failover and it's manual failover)
    2.Standalone Servers: (This is automatic failover Node1 to Node2 (3rd node also required for automatic failover) and manual failover(node1/node2 required) )
