Active to active failover assumption

Is it assumed that in an active to active failover involving two or more nodes that there will always be a node that can receive the failover?

What happens if there isn't a node that can receive the failover because the other nodes are all maxed out?

I can understand why in an active passive failover that assumption would be valid but it seems to me that in active to active failover this would be ify?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I assume that you are talking about VMs here? If the host is full, then the guest simply won’t be brought online.

    Proper capacity and resource planning should mitigate this except in the case of unexpected hardware failures. With a failover cluster configured for virtualization you will no doubt have enough nodes in place to support failed hosts.
