Two-Node Cluster Storage

Applies To: Windows Server 2012, Windows Storage Server 2008 R2

The two-node cluster Initial Configuration Tasks (ICT) window is included only in Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition, and it is displayed only if the Failover Clustering feature is installed. This ICT window is used to configure two-node storage failover clusters.

The following wizards simplify the setup and configuration process for failover clusters:

  • The Cluster Name and Domain Join Wizard

  • The Cluster Validation and Setup Wizard

The two-node cluster ICT window supports cluster configuration from a single console by using Windows Server 2008 R2 RemoteApp and Windows PowerShell remoting capabilities. For more information about remote server management, see the Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Getting Started Guide (
