Add-ClusterResourceType

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

Syntax

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

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.

Examples

Example 1

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

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

Example 2

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

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.
