  3. In Roles and Tasks, click Clusters, then click the Cluster Options link.

  4. Specify a cluster name, or browse and select the Cluster object.

  7. Click the AutoFailover button.

  8. Click the Auto-Failover link just under the tabs.

  9. Select the Enable Automatic Failover of Business Continuity Cluster Resources check box, then click Apply.
