- Does redundant configurations with Always On Availability Groups work on two virtual servers created from the SQL Server official image template?ECL2.0, SQLServer
No. As the restriction of virtual server menu, failover clustering does not work, including Always On Availability Groups and Always On Failover Cluster.
Service Descriptions - Logical Network - Restrictions - Network Function(Logical Network)
Redundancy scheme to use the same IP address by different MAC addresses will not work.
On the other hand, Always On Availability Groups can be configured on VM in dedicated hypervisor (Hyper-V or vSphere ESXi) environment.
Please note that Always On Failover Cluster cannot be created when using official image template.
Since the official image template installs SQL Server the first time it starts up, it cannot support Always On Failover Cluster environment.
If you bring in a license of SQL Server, you can configure Always On Failover Cluster with dedicated hypervisor (Hyper-V or vSphere ESXi).
