Updated: January 21, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2
To pause a node
Open Cluster Administrator.
In the console tree, click the node.
On the File menu, click Pause Node.
To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.
To open Cluster Administrator, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Cluster Administrator.
When you pause a node, existing groups and resources stay online, but additional groups and resources cannot be brought online on the node. Pausing a node is used for maintenance and testing.
