Failover Cluster

Failover Cluster

Failover Cluster


I am doing a test environment before deploying to production. I have 3 server (identical hardware HP DL20, 64Go Ram) that i want to configure as an hyper-v cluster. I have installed windows server 2012R2 on all 3 servers with the hyper-v and failover cluster roles and features. 2 of them are Windows 2012R2 Core and 1 is with GUI. All is well with the creation of the cluster but the server with GUI keeps getting booted. I have noticed that the 2 core have a Microsoft Failover Cluster Virtual adapter that is created automatically where the one with GUI does not.

All 3 servers have 2 Network Cards:
- network 1 : (20, 30) with internet access
- network 2 : (20.30) no internet access used for cluster operations (the Witness share is a SMB3.0 share on a NAS in the range)

I'm at a loss as to why the GUI server fails, i have tried taking it out of the cluster and re configuring it but i get the same results
