deploying SharePoint 2016 with the new MinRole feature-set in HA Scenario, 4 servers in total - not including the SQL server.

I'm new to SP HA. Do i just install and configure each server and add to farm and then setup a HA via a windows feature? or is the config built into SharePoint itself?

thanks in advance

  • 2 Servers with "Application with Search"
  • 2 servers with "Front-end with Distributed Cache"
  • You need a configure the load balancer in front of your WFE.
