Updated: October 17, 2013

Applies To: Windows 8.1, Windows PowerShell 4.0, Windows Server 2012 R2

Add-ClusterCheckpoint

Adds a cryptographic key checkpoint or registry checkpoint for a resource.

Syntax

Parameter Set: InputObject
Add-ClusterCheckpoint [[-ResourceName] <String> ] [-Cluster <String> ] [-CryptoCheckpointKey <String> ] [-CryptoCheckpointName <String> ] [-CryptoCheckpointType <String> ] [-InputObject <PSObject> ] [-RegistryCheckpoint <String> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Add-ClusterCheckpoint cmdlet adds a cryptographic key checkpoint or registry checkpoint for a resource.

Checkpoints help provide failover support for applications that store configuration information locally instead of or in addition to storing information in the cluster configuration database. Applications might store information locally in two ways. One way is to store configuration information in the registry on the local server; another way is to use cryptographic keys on the local server.

Parameters

-Cluster<String>

Specifies the name of the cluster on which to run this cmdlet. If the input for this parameter is . or it is omitted, then the cmdlet runs on the local cluster.

Examples

Example 1

This example adds a registry checkpoint called software\clusname for the resource named cluster name.


PS C:\> Add-ClusterCheckpoint -ResourceName "cluster name" -RegistryCheckpoint "software\clusname"
Resource                                                    Name 
--------                                                    ---- 
cluster name                                                software\clusname 

Example 2

This example adds a cryptographic checkpoint for the resource named Cluster Name.


PS C:\> Get-ClusterResource –Name "Cluster Name" | Add-ClusterCheckpoint -CryptoCheckpointName "Microsoft Base Cryptographic Provider v1.0"  -CryptoCheckpointType 1 -CryptoCheckpointKey "Crypto"
Resource                      Name                          Type                          Key 
--------                      ----                          ----                          --- 
Cluster Name                  Microsoft Base Cryptograph... 1                             Crypto
