Hyper V: Add a VM as a Cluster Resource

KB ID 0001390

Problem

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?

Solution

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

Add VM to Cluster

Next.

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

Next.

Cluster Wizard Add Virtual Machine Confirm

Finish

Add Virtual Machine Sucess
