Following was tested on Windows Server 2003 Assume a cluster consisting of nodes SVR10, SVR11 and clustername of SVRCLUSTER having file share "home" as a file share cluster resource 1. Switching nodes eg. assume SVR10 was active, SVR11 was standby > cluster node SVR10 /stop - stops SVR10 cluster service, forcing SVR11 to become live 2. Check node(s) status > cluster node SVR10 /Status > cluster /cluster:SVRCLUSTER node /status 3. Display property of a particular Resource, eg. file share resource named home > cluster resource home /properties 4. Create a new file share resource named home2 into the SharedFolders group, > cluster resource home2 /create /group:SharedFolders /TYPE:"File Share" 5. Define the private properties of the file share resource > cluster resource home2 /priv Path="c:\home2" ShareName=home2 Remark="Second shared home folder" 6. Define the resource dependency (done while resource is offline) > cluster resource home2 /adddependency:"Disk C:" 7. Bring resource offline or online > cluster resource home2 /offline > cluster resource home2 /online 8. Delete a resource > cluster resource <resourcename> /offline > cluster resource <resourcenmae> /delete 9. Set the file share resource security (permissions) > cluster resource home2 /priv Security=<sec grp or user>, accesstyp,accessmask:security sec grp or user = eg. Everyone, staff\xyz accesstype = grant, deny, set or revoke accessmask = R, C or F (for Read, Change and Full resp) For example to grant Everyone:Change permission to livenctr$ file share resource > cluster res livecntr$ /priv Security=Everyone,grant,C:security
