comment Browser service in sql server clustering
I've provided an answer for one of the questions you are asking - the direct question - it shouldn't come into play with failover and whether it is running or not won't affect that, generally if you need the browser it just runs on each node all the time and shouldn't cause an issue. For the real question here - why are you not failing over - can you post the actual error message and more information about your setup and what you've tried?
