/ADDRESOURCE

Indicates that you want to add a single resource to a single application on the controller of the cluster to which the specified member belongs. You must specify the fully qualified path to the resource to add it to the designated application. If /MEMBERONLY is specified, the resource is added only to the specified member, not to the controller.

/RESOURCETYPE:resource_type

Specifies the resource to be added to or removed from the application. The following are valid resource types:

  • FileSystem

  • IIS

  • Registry

  • DSN

  • COMPlusApp

/RESOURCEPATH:resource_path

Specifies the path to the resource to add to or remove from the application. Paths are specified as follows:

  • IIS: the complete metabase path. For example, "/LM/W3SVC/3" or site name ("My Web Site").

  • Registry: the complete registry path. For example, "HKEY_CURRENT_USERS\Software\Microsoft\ Active Setup\{guid}".

  • FileSystem: the complete file system path. For example, "C:\Program Files\Misc\ MyResource.txt".

  • DSN: the friendly name of the DSN (for example, "My DSN") or unique registry path, such as "My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ ODBC\ODBC.INI\Name".

  • COMPlusApp (COM+ application): the friendly name of the COM+ application or its GUID (CLSID).

/REMOVERESOURCE

Indicates that you want to remove a single resource from a single application on the controller of the cluster to which the member belongs. If /MEMBERONLY is specified, the resource is removed only from the specified member, not from the controller.

Samples

The following example shows how to create an application named gamescentral on all the members of an existing cluster.

AC APPLICATION /CREATE /NAME:gamescentral

The following example shows how to add a Web site resource to the application salesui.
