Hello, Why do we need to setup the regrep  resources on VCS? The reason why I'm asking when we install application such as SQLserver or anything keys will be in both node since we are putting the binaries on both nodes. We will have registry key in both nodes.  Do we still need to setup RegRep resource?

Theoretically, a risk matrix would seem to be a reasonable way of prioritizing risk management actions.

It would also allow the service group to be online if one ...
