Add-ClusterCheckpoint

Adds a cryptographic key checkpoint or registry checkpoint for a resource.

Syntax

Add-ClusterCheckpoint
   [[-ResourceName] <String>]
   [-CryptoCheckpointName <String>]
   [-CryptoCheckpointType <String>]
   [-CryptoCheckpointKey <String>]
   [-RegistryCheckpoint <String>]
   [-InputObject <PSObject>]
   [-Cluster <String>]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Add-ClusterCheckpoint cmdlet adds a cryptographic key checkpoint or registry checkpoint for a resource.

Checkpoints help provide failover support for applications that store configuration information locally instead of or in addition to storing information in the cluster configuration database. Applications might store information locally in two ways. One way is to store configuration information in the registry on the local server; another way is to use cryptographic keys on the local server.

Examples

Example 1: Add registry checkpoint

PS C:\> Add-ClusterCheckpoint -ResourceName "Cluster Name" -RegistryCheckpoint "software\clusname"
Resource                                                    Name 
--------                                                    ---- 
Cluster Name                                                software\clusname

This example adds a registry checkpoint called software\clusname for the resource named cluster name.

Example 2: Add cryptographic checkpoint

PS C:\> Get-ClusterResource -Name "Cluster Name" | Add-ClusterCheckpoint -CryptoCheckpointName "Microsoft Base Cryptographic Provider v1.0"  -CryptoCheckpointType 1 -CryptoCheckpointKey "Crypto"
Resource                      Name                          Type                          Key 
--------                      ----                          ----                          --- 
Cluster Name                  Microsoft Base Cryptograph... 1                             Crypto

This example adds a cryptographic checkpoint for the resource named Cluster Name.

Optional Parameters

-Cluster

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.

-CryptoCheckpointName

Specifies the name of a cryptographic key checkpoint to add.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CryptoCheckpointType

Specifies the type of a cryptographic key checkpoint to add. Options depend on the cryptographic provider.
