Hi, When I try to planned failover on my hyper-v vm machine on primary. i will prompt me to go to replica server to choose failover task to complete the planned failover process, i wont allow to start automaticly, is this the normal process? there is no issue if i start failover in replica server and the primary will start automaticly. so how to perform planned failover from primary in order for replica to start auto. I have tick to choose start replica server automaticly.

Thank you
