Hi all,

I have recently changed IP addresses on my MS SQL cluster (the new IP
addresses belong to a different network). Both physical node IP
addresses and resource's IP addresses have been changed.

Everything seems to work fine. The cluster is up and responding
normally. The resources failover to another node when needed correctly.
However, I have noticed that the time it takes for the resource to
failover to another node is much longer than in the past (before IP
addresses change). I have noticed that "Network Name" is the resource
type that delays everything. Could you please advise if there is
something that I overlooked and needs to be changed.updated as well, so
that groups fail over faster?
