Cluster client access point questions.

Greetings. Im walking through configuring a windows cluster/ sql server availability group as it's been years and need to brush up. I've got a student account which enables me some free use of VM's. I've got a couple 2019 boxes and walked through the cluster configuration wizard. However, on the Access Point for Administering the Cluster tab it's only asking for for a cluster name, not to assign it an IP address the way I see in articles.

The wizard completes w success, but I can't figure out what the cluster IP is, and this will cause me issues in later steps.

It should be noted that since this is a student account and I only have these two boxes, I dont have AD running, no dhcp server, etc.

Any ideas? Thanks!

    Hello there,
    I think this is the best way to retrieve the cluster IP address without using explicit names:
    Get-ClusterGroup | Where-Object { $_.GroupType -eq "Cluster" } |
        Get-ClusterResource | Where-Object { $_.ResourceType -eq "IP Address" } |
        Get-ClusterParameter -Name "Address" | 
        Select-Object -ExpandProperty "Value"
    Hope this resolves your Query !!
