Failover cluster feature is already installed in this 2 nodes cluster since many months everything was working fine since yesterday. However, I don't see the Failover Cluster Manager console anywhere, not in MMC, not in the Server Manager's list of Tools, not in System32 folder. The cluster commands through Powershell is working fine. I have checked and confirmed that WMI is working fine and the feature is installed. The server was rebooted yesterday.

Please help to get the console back.


It seems that you are trying to connect from another server, please check it. What server version do you have?

  • ha ha ha.... funny reply, why would I try to connect from non-cluster server? Server is 2012 R2. – Suman Chhetri Oct 20 '18 at 15:25

With the Get-WindowsFeature -Name *failover* PowerShell cmdlet you can check/confirm that management tools are installed on the server. If for some reason they don't seem to be installed you can do it with the install-windowsfeature just to include the management tools parameter.

  • From the Server Manager, I see the required Roles/Features are already installed. – Suman Chhetri Oct 20 '18 at 15:26
