Suspend-ClusterResource

Last Updated: 3/28/2017

SYNOPSIS

Turns on maintenance for a disk resource or CSV so that you can run a disk maintenance tool without triggering failover.

SYNTAX

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

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, Logical Unit Number (LUNs), in cluster storage, turning on maintenance leaves dependent resources online.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Turn on maintenance for a CSV

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

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

Example 2: Turn on maintenance for multiple volumes

PS C:\> Get-ClusterSharedVolume -Name "Cluster Disk 5" | Suspend-ClusterResource
Name                       State                      Node 
----                       -----                      ---- 
Cluster Disk 5             Online                     node2

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

Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-VolumeName

Specifies the name of the volume to suspend. This parameter is only applicable to CSVs. If this parameter is not specified, then the operation will be performed on all volumes on the CSV.
