  12. 12. AlwaysOn Availability GroupsCluster Witness and Voting Fundamentals • Automatic failover clustering requires servers to have the proper number of votes to ‘turn on’ a database copy. • There must always be a majority of votes to enable the node. • If a majority cannot be reached (for example, if there are only an even number of votes) the DBs will remain offline. • File Servers can act as File Share Witness (FSW) servers (additional votes.) • This avoids split-brain scenarios where multiple copies of a DB are online. • Very important concept to understand for AOAG
