Resolve Network Binding Order Warning in failover cluster

In this post, I’m going to talk about an issue that I found while running the cluster validation report. You may receive below warning message that includes information about the cause of the warning, which can help you to resolve the issue.
Rule “Network binding order” generated a warning.
The domain network is not the first bound network.  This will cause domain operations to run slowly and can cause timeouts that result in failures.  Use the Windows network advanced configuration to change the binding order.

In the below screenshot, the warning says the network card used to connect to your domain network is not at the top of the network binding order.

Resolution

Step 1

Go to run and type ncpa.cpl to open network connections. Now press Alt+F and select advanced options then click on Advanced and Advanced SettingsWhen the Advanced Settings window opens, you will be on the Adapters and Bindings tab, which allows you to change the binding order for the network interfaces on the server.

Step 2:

In this case the Microsoft Failover Cluster Virtual Adapter is bound before the domain network and still the cluster validation report shows you warning. In the below screenshot, the TeamNIC_MGMT NIC adapater is my domain network and was already at the top of the binding order.

Speaking at Community Events – More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events – Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I’ve got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
