Set-ClusterResourceDependency

Set-ClusterResourceDependency

Specify the resources that a particular resource depends on within a failover cluster. Existing dependencies will be overwritten by the dependencies that you specify.

Syntax

Set-ClusterResourceDependency [-InputObject <psobject>] [[-Resource] <string>] [[-Dependency] <string>] [-Cluster <string>] [<CommonParameters>]
  • InputObject

  • Resource

  • Dependency

  • Cluster

Detailed Description

You can use "or" in the expression describing the dependency. An example for using "or": you can set up a dependency where a Network Name resource is dependent on either of two IP Address resources (instead of being dependent on both). This use of "or" dependencies is common in multi-site cluster deployments.
