Why can't I see witness in the failover cluster manager snap-in?



  • SELECT * FROM sys.dm_hadr_cluster_members
    

    This query shows me 2 nodes and 1 file share witness.

    However, when I open the wsfc cluster manager snap-in, then click on Role, select the role, I cannot see the witness. Am I looking in wrong place for witness?



  • Yes, you are looking at the wrong place in cluster manager snap-in. On the snap-in, click on the cluster name, and you should be able to see it in two places.

    See the image below:

    You can also use the PowerShell command Get-ClusterQuorum to get information about the witness. Details https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/failoverclusters/get-clusterquorum?view=windowsserver2022-ps .
