We have a two-node active/active SQL Server 2008 Std Cluster on Windows 2008 on Production.
After a network maintenance, the network card (not heart-beat) of one node has no gateway ip. We want to fix it without causing a failover.
I assume when we set gateway ip, the network card will be reset, and the ip will be temporarily unavailable, then fail-over happens. Am I right?
Is there a way to play with dependencies not to initiate failover during fixing network card?
