DNS: Application high availability
On your site "What's new in DNS Server in Windows Server 2016" is written that there will be a new feature called "DNS Policies", which can be used for "Application high availability". But i can't find this feature, which allows me to redirect clients to the healthiest endpoint like a failover-cluster. I'm not looking for a loadbalancer.
Other People are looking too for this Feature and some documentation, when will it be available?
This feature would be great for applications like ADFS and so on.

Hi, Thank you very much for your Feedback!
I already had a look on this doc, but i couldn't find the feature, which fails from the unhealthy client to the healthy client. So it's like weight-based application-load-balancing, but it is a failover. If a client is not available (=unhealthy), the DNS switches automaticly to the other healthy client. This allows in a small local network a Failover, but no necessarily a load-balancer - of Course, most time you will loadbalance. I hope you understand what we're looking for and can help us.
Hi. The DNS team pointed me to this doc for you, please let me know if it answers your questions: https://technet.microsoft.com/windows-server-docs/networking/dns/deploy/dns-policy-scenario-guide?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396
