By default, domain admins have full access to a Windows Failover Cluster. All domain users are denied access to a Windows Failover cluster. If you wish to allow a few users to access a Windows Failover Cluster to view cluster resources and its properties, you can use Grant-ClusterAccess PowerShell cmdlet.
For example, to allow User1 of TechGenix.com domain to have read only access to a Windows Failover cluster, run below command:
- Grant-ClusterAccess -User TechGenix.Com\User1 -ReadOnly
In case you need to give a user full access to the failover cluster, add -Full parameter as shown below:
- Grant-ClusterAccess -User TechGenix.Com\User2 -Full
