Whether you are new to clusters or have years of experience, you may still cross your fingers when implementing a failover cluster instance (FCI) of SQL Server or an availability group (AG). Both require an underlying Windows Server failover cluster (WSFC), but how many DBAs are involved in the planning and deployment of it? What happens if you try to install an FCI or configure an AG and things don’t work? Or worse, what if the implementation fails after going live in production? This session will cover how to diagnose what went wrong and the free tools available to you, as well as demonstrate how to fix common issues that every DBA should know about.
