Microsoft has released a hotfix for when the cluster service initiates a failover after a delay of about 80 seconds when you shutdown the active node in Windows Server 2008 R2.

Consider the following scenario:

  • You configure a failover cluster on some computers that are running Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • You add a crossover cable between two nodes of the cluster.
  • You shutdown the active node of the cluster.

In this scenario, the Cluster service initiates a failover after a delay of about 80 seconds.
Note The Cluster service usually initiates the failover within 5 seconds.

This issue occurs because the Cluster service incorrectly waits for Global Update Manager (GUM) updates.

A hotfix has been released to fix this issue.
