We here at SolarWinds are continuously looking to improve our products in both functionality and user experience. Failover Engine (FoE) as you can imagine, doesn't get a tremendous amount of feedback from the Thwack community. This is because FoE is akin to the spare tire sitting in the trunk of your car. You hardly ever think about it until you need it. With that in mind, I've compiled a few thought provoking questions that I hope will engage those of you in the community to think about how you use FoE. This should help to give us a better understanding how and where we can improve FoE in the future,

Are your Failover Engine member servers joined to the Domain?
