Syntax

Parameter Set: InputObject
Move-ClusterGroup [[-Name] <String> ] [[-Node] <String> ] [-Cluster <String> ] [-IgnoreLocked] [-InputObject <PSObject> ] [-Wait <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Move-ClusterGroup cmdlet moves a clustered role (a resource group) from one node to another in a failover cluster.

Moving a resource group is a way of simulating failover. Running this cmdlet is also an appropriate step to take in preparation for routine maintenance on a node.

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 moves the clustered service called MyFileServer from the current owner node to any other node.


PS C:\> Move-ClusterGroup –Name MyFileServer
Name                       OwnerNode                                      State 
----                       ---------                                      ----- 
MyFileServer               node1                                         Online 

EXAMPLE 2

This example moves the resource group called MyFileServer from the current owner node to the node named node2.


PS C:\> Move-ClusterGroup –Name MyFileServer -Node node2
Name                       OwnerNode                                      State 
----                       ---------                                      ----- 
MyFileServer               node2                                         Online 

EXAMPLE 3

This example moves all resource groups that are currently owned by the node named node3 to other nodes. Use this cmdlet before performing maintenance on the specified node.


PS C:\> Get-ClusterNode node3 | Get-ClusterGroup | Move-ClusterGroup
Name                       OwnerNode                                      State 
----                       ---------                                      ----- 
Available Storage          node4                                         Online 
Cluster Group              node1                                         Online 
MyFileServer               node1                                         Online 

EXAMPLE 4

This example moves the resource group called MyFileServer from the current owner node to the node named node2. Information about MyFileServer is displayed immediately, while it is in the process of being moved.


PS C:\> Move-ClusterGroup –Name MyFileServer -Node node2 -Wait 0
Name                       OwnerNode                                      State 
----                       ---------                                      ----- 
MyFileServer              node2                                        Pending
