Hyper V: Add a VM as a Cluster Resource

KB ID 0001390


If you have a Hyper  V cluster, then you should add virtual machines with ‘Failover Cluster Manager’ but if someone does not, (i.e. they add them directly to a host), then you wont see them in the list! So how do you add them in?


In Cluster Failover Manager > Right Click the failover node > Configure Role.

Add VM to Cluster


Cluster HA Wizard

Scroll down and select Virtual Machine > Next.

Cluster HA Wizard Add VM

Non clustered VM’s will be shown select the VM(s) as required > Next.

Cluster HA Wizard Add Virtual Machine


Cluster Wizard Add Virtual Machine Confirm
