Add-ClusterResourceType

Add-ClusterResourceType

Adds a resource type to a failover cluster, and specifies information such as the DLL to use with that resource type.

Syntax

Parameter Set: InputObject
Add-ClusterResourceType [-Name] <String> [-Dll] <String> [[-DisplayName] <String> ] [-Cluster <String> ] [-InputObject <PSObject> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Add-ClusterResourceType cmdlet adds a resource type to a failover cluster, and specifies information such as the dynamic-link library (DLL) to use with that resource type.

The failover cluster software provides Resource DLL files for the most common types of resources. Using the application programming interface (API) provided in the Microsoft Platform Software Development Kit (SDK), other vendors can add support for other resource types.

Note: This cmdlet cannot be run remotely without Credential Security Service Provider (CredSSP) authentication on the server computer.

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: Create a resource type on the local cluster

This example creates ResType3 on the local cluster using res3.dll located on the provided resource DLL file path C:\.


PS C:\> Add-ClusterResourceType -Name "ResType3" –InputObject C:\res3.dll

Example 2: Create a resource type and specify a display name

This example creates ResType4 on the local cluster using res4.dll located on the provided resource DLL file path C:\. The display name of the resource type is Resource Type 4.


PS C:\> Add-ClusterResourceType –Name "ResType4" -InputObject C:\res4.dll -DisplayName "Resource Type 4"
