Hello all!
I really hope that it's a right place to public my question.

I try to find whether Always on of SQL 2012 is enabled on Clustered Servers, but still didn't find it.
I mean the next: I have two branches in different geographic locations. In each branch i have two SQL Servers are grouped in A Cluster. Can i use "Always on" between these two clusters in different branches?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Bro,

I know its late. but dont know wether you have figured it out or not,

Just adding my idea, though i am not a pro.

You need to have SQL 2012 management studio.

If you can open your SQL configuration manager, you see the instance name on which you want to enable ALWAYS ON option.

Go to the properties window, you can see a tab mentioning always on.

It need to be turned on, If you dont have any specific Fixes, it will suggest you to install.

If you have all the set up, you should be good to enable it.

DID this help you???

Rookie here

I believe that all nodes have to be in the same cluster to utilize the Always On functionality. You could still use log shipping or mirroring but not Always-On.

Sorry man.
