4 comments on “Script for Rebooting Failover Cluster hosts/nodes one by one

  1. Testing your script on a 3 node Hyper-V cluster. Everything appears to work except for failback of roles. Once the script is complete, the last node to restart has no roles on it. Wouldn’t it make sense to add the failback parameter onto the resume command?

    • Yes, that is a great suggestion, you can add “-Failback” to the “Resume-ClusterNode” command for moving the roles back to it. Or if you have set the cluster to Auto Load Balance it should balance the VMs automatically when needed.

  2. Hi Jay,

    Can you please send me a copy of this Reboot Cluster Host script to my via email. The download is not working.

    Thank you so much!
