Help Configuring VM Roles for High Availability
I'm relatively new to this so bear with me. I've recently created a failover cluster network in a VMWare Workstation 14 environment. It consists of 1 storage server and 2 cluster nodes. All 3 of them running Windows Server 2016 Standard and joined to the same domain. I added and configured the cluster storage so that itís available to both cluster nodes. Then I went into the Failover Cluster Manager and created the cluster and added and configured the disks (1 storage disk for the Hyper-V VM storage and 1 quorum disk witness). I also got the Hyper-V VMs (1 of them is the DC) moved over to the cluster storage.
In the Failover Cluster Manager, I went to Roles > configure role > selected the virtual machine role > selected the VM I wanted to be highly available > clicked next and made it highly available. Everything works fine with that VM. The problem I am having is when I go to make another VM highly available, I do the same exact process again, selected the VM role again, but that 2nd VM I add shows up under the same role as the 1st VM I made highly available. Why does it keep doing this?? I donít want both VMs under the same role. I want each machine to be in a separate VM role so that they can failover separately. Iíve spent HOURS trying to figure this out. Iíve watched videos on YouTube and they seem to be able to do it just fine. Iíve also been able to do this in the past but just canít figure out what I am doing wrong. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
