  • Administrative permissions on each of the servers that will become cluster nodes.

  • Permissions to Create Computer Objects and Read All Properties in the container used for computer accounts in the Active Directory domain.

  • Databases:

  • A minimum of 3 (1 primary and 2 failover) servers (virtual or physical), to act as Alteryx Server Controllers.

    • It is recommended to have an odd number of systems to maintain Cluster Quorum. If you do not have an odd number of servers, to maintain a Quorum, you should use a disk, file share, or cloud witness.

    • For high-availability, it is recommended that the servers be geographically dispersed. The failover controllers should never reside on the same Virtual Host, or within the same Data Center.

    • At minimum, each node within the failover cluster requires an Alteryx Server for High Availability license (SKU: AX‐147956).

  • For additional information on Microsoft Failover Clustering, refer to the Failover Clustering in Windows Server and Azure Stack HCI article.
