availability groups – SQL Server 2019 Always On using Distributed Network Name

We’re running a couple SQL servers in Azure that are set up with an Always On availability group and Windows Failover Clustering. The servers are Windows 2019 and we’re running SQL Server 2019. When we set up the cluster, it was set up to use a Distributed Network Name instead of a static cluster IP address. Thanks to this we shouldn’t need an internal load balancer according to these notes: https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/issues/34648.

I’m struggling to understand exactly how this works though. Based on what I read, it seems like our connection strings will point to the DNS name of the cluster (let’s call it AgCluster). If I look in DNS, there is an A record for AgCluster pointing to sql1 and another pointing to sql2. When I use AgCluster in my connection string it seems to always connect me to the primary server, even if I have ApplicationIntent=ReadOnly set. When I query @@SERVERNAME I always get the same server.

So with the Distributed Network Name setup, what should I use in my connection strings to make sure read/write queries go to the primary and read only go to a secondary? Any guides on setting this up in general would be helpful. Thanks!

sql server – What are the benefits of using Manual Failover Mode in an AlwaysOn Availability Group instance as opposed to Automatic Failover Mode?

If you have synchronous replicas you typically have one with automatic failover. The most common reason not to is when the primary is hosted on a Failover Cluster Instance, and it’s a rule that only the FCI can failover automatically in that configuration.

But you could also have a scenario where you would prefer an outage over a failover, for instance if the secondary replica is not accessible from the application.

SQL Server Management Studio cannot Connect to Always On Availability Listener

I am trying to connect to the AG Listener in SSMS.
I choose (Connect)
Then (Database Engine)
I type in the name of the listener I created.
SQLListener
(Windows Authentication)
Click (Connect)

After about 1-minute, I receive the following ERROR message

TITLE: Connect to Server

Cannot connect to SQLListener.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while
establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or
was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that
SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named
Pipes Provider, error: 40 – Could not open a connection to SQL Server)

(Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 2)

The system cannot find the file specified

I watched a video on YT where this guy runs through the creation of the AG.
He names his GROUP and his LISTENER
Identical names, and can connect to the Listener, through SSMS.
However, I cannot.
My Group is: SQLGroup
My listener is: SQLListener
(Are they supposed to be identical names?)

I wanted to make sure my Listener port was available and was able to be reached
so I ran the following on the primary SQL Core Server.
The listener is registered in DNS and in AD – Computers as SQLListener.

cmd = netstat -ano|fine "2433"
Returned
TCP 192.168.2.77:2433 0.0.0.0:0 Listening 252
I did an NSLookup on the SQLListener.

CMD nslookup SQLListener
Returned:
Server: MasterDC.Domain.local
Address: 192.168.2.88
Name: SQLListener.domain.local
Address: 192.168.2.77
Everything is accurate.

Do I need to open the port 2433 on my work station to add the listener within SSMS?
What is it that I am missing here?

Availability groups – How do you configure a 4-node AlwaysOn cluster for two listeners?

Create an AlwaysOn Windows 2016 4-node failover cluster (servers A, B, C, and D) with 2 nodes in the primary data center for HA and 2 additional replica nodes in the DR data center for disaster / reporting purposes.

Because it is a multi-site cluster, two listeners (one for the production / primary instance, the other for the DR instance) can be configured under an AlwaysOn availability group.

Would SQL have to be running on all four nodes under the same service account? Or servers A, B can be on one account while servers C, D are running on another account.

Is that even feasible / possible? Thanks in advance for your help!! Hope everyone is safe and healthy at this time.

Availability of statistics on the market for usability test software

Wait a minute. Before you close this question too quickly, it is not a question of "tell me which software is the best" or "which software you are using".

I wonder if there is actually hard data for the percentages / number of UX experts using the various usability test software (Optimal Workshop, Silverback, Morae, etc.).

You know what you see for using internet browsers or operating systems. I might even imagine how the surveys that Stack Overflow has created on programming languages ​​that software developers use every year do something similar at UX conferences or websites about choosing software for usability testing.

Perhaps a little difficult to answer, I guess one question that needs to be asked is "What makes a UX expert", since it's not exactly a licensed profession, and probably more diverse and specialized than ever.

Collecting the data is also somewhat more difficult because it is not automatically logged on the Internet, as is the case when using software that is as critical as the browser and operating system.

However, many industries can assess market penetration well. I therefore hope that various software providers will provide data on their subscription or usage analyzes.

If it is a little difficult to define "professionally", percentages / number of users in total among the main alternatives would also be data that would interest me.
