Using Cluster Administrator

Cluster Administrator shows you information about the groups and resources on all of your clusters and specific information about the clusters themselves. A copy of Cluster Administrator is automatically installed on your computer when you install Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition; Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition; or Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition.

Important

  • Cluster nodes must be running Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition or Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition. You cannot create a cluster or add nodes to an existing cluster on computers running Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition.

For remote administration, you can install copies of Cluster Administrator on other computers on your network running Windows server 2003 family operating systems. Cluster Administrator is available through Windows server 2003  Administration Tools, included on the Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition; Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition; and Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition compact disc sets. The remote and local copies of Cluster Administrator will be identical. It is also possible to administer a Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition or Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition server cluster remotely from a computer running Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 3 or later using the Windows NT server, Enterprise Edition 4.0, Cluster Administrator tool or from a computer running Windows 2000.

This section describes the uses of Cluster Administrator, including the ways in which it changes procedures you might have been familiar with in a noncluster environment.
