Checklist: Creating a new resource

Obtain an Internet Protocol (IP) address and subnet mask from your network administrator.

This address must be a static IP address not already in use on the network. Make sure that the subnet mask is the same subnet mask as the one for the associated cluster network.

IP Addressing and Routing

Determine whether or not NetBIOS needs to be enabled for this IP address.

If NetBIOS for the IP address is enabled, it allows a dependent network name to be published using NetBIOS. If it is not enabled, the dependent network name will only be published using DNS.

Disable WINS/NetBT name resolution


Determine the network on which to create this resource.


  • It is recommended that you create IP Address resources on a network accessible by clients, that is, a public or mixed network.
