Failover cluster site name under nodes page shows old site name

James Edmonds 811 Reputation points


I deployed a two node cluster, and later changed our Active Directory site name.
A new cluster I deployed shows the new site name on each node when looking at the nodes page, but the old cluster still shows the old site name for both nodes.

Is there a way to force the cluster to refresh the site name, or manually adjust it?

    Check the current AD site in each node of old cluster by runing this command :

    nltest /dsgetsite

    A reboot will refresh all closest AD site and active directory.
    Try launch a reboot of old cluster nodes , if their subnet is attached to new AD site and the command below still showing the old AD site.
