Suspend-ClusterNode

Suspend-ClusterNode

Suspend activity on a failover cluster node, that is, pause the node.

Syntax

Suspend-ClusterNode [-InputObject <psobject>] [[-Name] <StringCollection>] [-Cluster <string>] [<CommonParameters>]
  • InputObject

  • Name

  • Cluster

Detailed Description

Pausing (suspending) a node is usually done when applying software updates to the node, where the recommended sequence is to move all services and applications off of the node, pause the node, then apply software updates to the node. If you need to perform extensive diagnosis or maintenance on a cluster node, it might be more workable to stop (not pause) the Cluster service on that node.

Parameters
