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();

Here is the result set.
