cutoff (cluster) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are moving sql instances from cluster to vm. Our plan is as follows for cutover:

    1. Restore last trans log backup from cluster to vm.
    2. Take resource group offline related to that instance.
    3. restore last trans log on vm with recovery.
    4. Bring application online

    We have 3 instances on cluster (active/passive). We will move these instances one by one and will take these resource groups in cluster offline and will set autostart property flase in cluster admin for that group.

    Please let me know if that is fine, any issue and how we will remove cluster once all instanced removed. How don't need cluster after that. Definitely we will keep this cluster availale with no resouce group online for few months as backup.
