Topic: Keeping SQL clusters active After Patching
Use case: We are still using Windows FCI (Fail Over Cluster Instances) during patch windows the Network Operations Center (NOC) will often reboot servers and forget to move the SQL Server resources back to the node they just rebooted. We needed a way to allow the NOC to find all the Windows FIC’s that were running more than ( 1 ) SQL role on a single physical server.
Approach: since we needed a way to query the FCI names from Active directory we decided to use PowerShell vs TSQL. This session will be about how this was accomplished using PowerShell
