We have the following configuration :
- Microsoft Operating System is Windows Server 2012 R2 in a Single forest.
- Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V Cluster
- Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager
- Microsoft SQL 2012 SP1
Here you see the Step-by-Step guide to add a Hyper-v node to the Cluster with System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager :
Go to all Hosts and add the new Hyper-V node into SCVMM with this wizard.
When you see the new Hyper-V host in System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager, you have to setup the host with all the settings from Virtual Machine Manager by opening
the properties of the new host.
Here you set the right NICs to the Logical networks.
Here we set the following NICs :
- Production network
- Management network
- Live Migration network
- Heartbeat network

Then you have to add the virtual NIC to the Virtual Switch :
For production we set two NICs into a Team for capacity :
When all of the properties are set, click on OK and the settings will be provisioned to the new Hyper-V node.
Before we add the new Hyper-V node to the Cluster, you can validate the Hyper-V Cluster if it’s still good and healty :
When the running Hyper-V Cluster is validated and good we can add the new Hyper-V node to the Cluster with System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager :
