ArcGIS Server 10.1 to work with Windows 2008 Cluster in Failover

I have installed ArcGIS Server 10.1 on Node01 and Node02 and both are accessing ArcGIS Server directories from local drive.
Both nodes have exact same configuration in terms of Services and ArcGIS Server Admin user. I have Web Adaptor installed on both nodes as well.

Both nodes are onto one cluster and we are using Windows 2008 Cluster.

When i connect to Cluster by typing "http://Cluster name/arcgis/rest/services", i can see services installed on Node01 since it's an  active node for this particular cluster.

Is this a correct way to configure ArcGIS Server 10.1 for failover. And what extra settings you need to do within Windows Cluster to test ArcGIS Server failover scenario?

Thanks and Regards,
