Installing Failover Cluster feature using Windows PowerShell

It is important to note that you must run these cmdlets in a PowerShell console that is opened with elevated privileges, which means opening it with the “Run as Administrator” option.

The following cmdlet will install the Failover Clustering feature and the management tools.
Note: If you do not specify the –IncludeManagementTools switch, the Failover Cluster Administrator and PowerShell cmdlets for cluster will not be installed.

Install-WindowsFeature -Name Failover-Clustering –IncludeManagementTools

You can use the –ComputerName parameter to install the features on other servers without having to log into them.  Here is an example of the cmdlet to install the failover cluster feature and tools on a specified server, in this case “Foo”:

Install-WindowsFeature -Name Failover-Clustering –IncludeManagementTools –ComputerName Foo

If you would like to find the list of features and the names to specify in the Install-WindowsFeature cmdlet, you can use this cmdlet:

Get-WindowsFeature

Wildcards can be helpful to narrow down the returned set of features:

Get-WindowsFeature Failover*

The Get-WindowsFeature Failover* cmdlet will return the feature, but not the tools.  To get the tools you can use the following:

Get-WindowsFeature RSAT-Cluster*
