Need a little help organizing and documenting your SF Cluster? This can help!

Restarting an AOS in AX 2009 and 2012 is easy. Depending on the topology in D365, that can also be easy.

Included with the scripts to setup the service fabric cluster is this one:

.\Get-AgentConfiguration.ps1 -ConfigurationFile .\ConfigTemplate.xml

This gives a nice table of output with almost everything you need to create the on-premise connector.
