Add-ClusterGenericApplicationRole

Add-ClusterGenericApplicationRole

Configure high availability for an application that was not originally designed to run in a failover cluster.

Syntax

Add-ClusterGenericApplicationRole [-InputObject <psobject>] -CommandLine <string> [[-Name] <string>] [-CheckpointKey <StringCollection>] [-Cluster <string>] [-IgnoreNetwork <StringCollection>] [-Parameters <string>] [-StaticAddress <StringCollection>] [-Storage <StringCollection>] [-Wait <int>] [<CommonParameters>]
  • InputObject

  • CommandLine

  • Name

  • CheckpointKey

  • Cluster

  • IgnoreNetwork

  • Parameters

  • StaticAddress

  • Storage

  • Wait

Detailed Description

If you run an application as a Generic Application, the cluster software will start the application, then periodically query the operating system to see whether the application appears to be running. If so, it is presumed to be online, and will not be restarted or failed over.

Parameters

CheckpointKey

Specifies a comma-separated list of registry checkpoint keys to add for this highly available generic application. All registry paths are relative to HKLM\.

Examples

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

Command Prompt: C:\PS>
 
Add-ClusterGenericApplicationRole -CommandLine NewApplication.exe 
 
Name                       OwnerNode                           State

cluster1GenApp             node2                              Online

Description

-----------

This command configures NewApplication.exe as a generic clustered application. A default name will be used for client access and this application requires no storage.

 

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 2 --------------------------

Command Prompt: C:\PS>
 
Add-ClusterGenericApplicationRole -CommandLine NewApplication.exe -Storage "Cluster Disk 4" -Name NewApplication 
 
Name                       OwnerNode                           State 
----                       ---------                           ----- 
NewApplication                 node2                          Online

Description

-----------

This command configures NewApplication.exe as a generic clustered application using Cluster Disk 4, and assigns the name NewApplication.

 

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 3 --------------------------

Command Prompt: C:\PS>
 
Add-ClusterGenericApplicationRole -CommandLine NewApplication.exe -Wait 0 
 
Name                       OwnerNode                           State 
----                       ---------                           -----
