Let's say there are multiple jobs running on the SQL Server - we have index maintenance jobs, backups, replication, etc. We would like to perform a switchover using Failover Cluster Manager. Are there any best practices before performing such operation, for example disabling the jobs? Is there anything which could be done to minimize any potential risks?
