Set-ClusterResourceDependency

Specifies the resources that a particular resource depends on within a failover cluster.

Syntax

Set-ClusterResourceDependency
   [[-Resource] <String>]
   [[-Dependency] <String>]
   [-Cluster <String>]
   [-InputObject <PSObject>]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Set-ClusterResourceDependency cmdlet specifies the resources that a particular resource depends on within a failover cluster. Existing dependencies will be overwritten by the dependencies that you specify.

The term or can be used in the expression describing the dependency. For example, an or dependency can be set up where a Network Name resource is dependent on either of two IP address resources, instead of being dependent on both. This use of or dependencies is common in multi-site cluster deployments.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> Set-ClusterResourceDependency -Resource cluster1FS12 -Dependency "[IP Address 151.56.48.0]"

This example makes the resource called cluster1FS12 dependent on [IP Address 151.56.48.0].

Example 2

C:\PS>Set-ClusterResourceDependency -Resource cluster1FS12 -Dependency "[IP Address 151.56.48.0] or [New IP Address]"

This example makes the resource called cluster1FS12 dependent on either [IP Address 151.56.48.0] or [New IP Address].

Example 3

C:\PS>Set-ClusterResourceDependency -Resource cluster1FS12 -Dependency ""

This example clears the dependency list for the resource named cluster1FS12, so that it no longer depends on any other resources.

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.
