Windows cluster – checking if services or applications are running on preferred node


To obtain information about the location where cluster services or applications are running now and if they are running on the preferred node.

My way of achieving it

Using powershell. From time to time we want to know if everything is running on the preferred node on our cluster. Although the best practice will be to already have a powershell script that I can run on our server in some cases if the script is not there already or if the creation of the scripts is forbidden or just because I find more easier to copy paste the script in powershell console I decided to create something that might be considered like  an one-liner for this job.

The output of the script is below
