Remarks
  • Using the cluster resourcetype command

    The cluster name is optional. If the name of your cluster is also a cluster command or its abbreviation, such as "cluster" or "c," use /cluster: to explicitly specify the cluster name. For a list of all the cluster commands, see Related Topics.

  • Using the /list command-line option

    Resource type display name is optional. If you do not provide a resource type display name, all installed resource types are listed.

  • Using the /delete [/type] command-line option

    If the resource DLL cannot be accessed by the Cluster service, specify the resource type name with the /type command-line option instead of specifying the resource type display name.

  • Using the /prop[erties] [PropertyList] command-line option

    Resource type display name is optional. Properties for all resourcetypes are displayed if you do not provide a resource type display name. For more information on property lists, see Related Topics.

  • Using the /priv[properties] [PropertyList] command-line option

    The resource type display name is optional. If you do not provide a resource type display name, the private properties for all resourcetypes are displayed. For more information on property lists, see Related Topics.
