Get-ClusterCheckpoint

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

Syntax

Get-ClusterCheckpoint
   [[-ResourceName] <StringCollection>]
   [-CheckpointName <String>]
   [-Cluster <String>]
   [-CryptoCheckpoint]
   [-InputObject <PSObject>]
   [-RegistryCheckpoint]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-ClusterCheckpoint cmdlet retrieves 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

PS C:\> Get-ClusterCheckpoint
Resource                      Name                          Type                          Key 
--------                      ----                          ----                          --- 
Cluster Name                  Microsoft Enhanced Cryptog...                               b5a571f2-c28b-48fa-b82f-a8... 
Cluster Name                  software\clusname

This example retrieves all cluster checkpoints.

Example 2

PS C:\> Get-ClusterResource -ResourceName "Cluster Name" | Get-ClusterCheckpoint -CryptoCheckpoint
Resource                      Name                          Type                          Key 
--------                      ----                          ----                          --- 
Cluster Name                  Microsoft Enhanced Cryptog...                               b5a571f2-c28b-48fa-b82f-a8...

This example retrieves the cryptographic checkpoints for the resource named Cluster Name.

Optional Parameters

-InputObject

Specifies the cluster on which to run the cmdlet or the cluster resource for which to retrieve the checkpoint.

Type:PSObject
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-RegistryCheckpoint

Specifies that registry checkpoints will be retrieved.

Type:SwitchParameter
