<Resource> Properties: Dependencies Tab

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

When you specify resource dependencies, you control the order in which the Cluster service brings resources online and takes them offline. A dependent resource is:

  • Brought online after the resource or resources it depends on.

  • Taken offline before the resource or resources it depends on.

noteNote
After specifying dependencies, to see a report, right-click the clustered service or application (not the resource), and then click Show Dependency Report.

This tab contains the following controls:

 

Item Details

Resource

Click the box, and then select a resource from the list. The list contains the other resources in this clustered service or application that have not already been selected.

AND/OR

For the second or later lines:

  • Specify AND if both the resource in that line and one or more previously listed resources must be online before the dependent resource is brought online.

  • Specify OR if either the resource in that line or another previously listed resource must be online before the dependent resource is brought online. (The dependent resource can also be brought online if both are online.)

Notice that gray brackets appear to show how the listings are grouped, based on the AND/OR settings.

Insert

When you select a line in the list and click Insert, a line is added to the list before the selected line.

Delete

When you select a line in the list and click Delete, the line is deleted.
