    Thank you for the article. I have a question: Can I use this feature to cluster ssas, ssis, and ssrs to an already installed sql server cluster?

  2. Hi,

    Just wish to highlight that we can’t add SSAS to existing clustered instance. You can refer to following mentioned article.
    I have already tried to do on SQL Server 2012 and was not able to add however i am not sure about SQL 2014 or SQL 2016.

    Thanks
