WSFC cluster service is offline

WSFC cluster service is offline


Policy Name

WSFC Cluster State


WSFC cluster service is offline.




Instance of SQL Server



This policy checks the state of the Windows Server Failover Cluster (WSFC). The policy is in an unhealthy state when the WSFC cluster is offline or in the forced quorum state. All availability groups hosted within this cluster are offline or a disaster recovery action is required.

The policy state is healthy when the cluster state is in the normal quorum.


Possible Causes

This issue can be caused by a cluster service issue or by the loss of the quorum in the cluster.


Possible Solution

Use the Cluster Administrator tool to perform the forced quorum or disaster recovery workflow. If you cannot resolve the issue by performing the forced quorum or disaster recovery, contact your cluster administrator to help resolve this issue. For more information, see the Forced Quorum and Disaster Recovery How to Guide in SQL Server Books Online.
