Suspend-ClusterResource

Turns on maintenance for a disk resource or Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) so that you can run a disk maintenance tool without triggering failover.

Syntax

Parameter Set: InputObject
Suspend-ClusterResource [[-Name] <String> ] [-Cluster <String> ] [-Force] [-InputObject <PSObject> ] [-RedirectedAccess] [-VolumeName <String> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Suspend-ClusterResource cmdlet turns on maintenance for a disk resource or Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) so that a disk maintenance tool can be run without triggering failover.

This cmdlet only applies to disks and CSVs. For Cluster Shared Volumes, turning on maintenance takes dependent resources offline, which interrupts client access. For other disks (LUNs) in cluster storage, turning on maintenance leaves dependent resources online.

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 turns on maintenance for CSV named Cluster Disk 2 so that you can run a disk maintenance tool without triggering failover.


PS C:\> Suspend-ClusterResource –Name "Cluster Disk 2"
Name                State               Group               ResourceType 
----                -----               -----               ------------ 
Cluster Disk 2      Online(Maintenance) Available Storage   Physical Disk 

EXAMPLE 2

This example turns on maintenance for all volumes on the CSV named Cluster Disk 5.


PS C:\> Get-ClusterSharedVolume –Name "Cluster Disk 5" | Suspend-ClusterResource
Name                       State                      Node 
----                       -----                      ----
