fn_virtualservernodes (Transact-SQL)

Returns a list of failover clustered instance nodes on which an instance of SQL Server can run. This information is useful in failover clustering environments.

ms176098.note(en-US,SQL.90).gifImportant:
This Microsoft SQL Server 2000 system function is included for backward compatibility. We recommend that you use sys.dm_os_cluster_nodes instead.


fn_virtualservernodes()

If the current server is a clustered server, fn_virtualservernodes returns a list of failover clustered instance nodes on which this instance of SQL Server has been defined.

If the current server instance is not a clustered server, fn_virtualservernodes returns an empty rowset.

The user must have VIEW SERVER STATE permission for the instance of SQL Server.

The following example uses fn_virtualservernodes to query on a clustered server instance:

SELECT * FROM fn_virtualservernodes()

This is the result set:

NodeName

--------

SS3-CLUSN1

SS3-CLUSN2
