Specifies the maximum number of failover attempts that can be made on a group within a time interval defined by FailoverPeriod. The following table summarizes the attributes of the FailoverThreshold property.
For example, if FailoverThreshold is set to 2 and RestartPeriod is set to 1, a node can tolerate 2 failover attempts of the group within any 1-hour interval. More than 3 failover attempts can occur, as long as they occur over an interval that is greater than 1 hour.
If a value for FailoverThreshold is not specified, the default value is the number of nodes in the cluster minus 1. This is represented as 0xFFFFFFFF.
The property value portion of a property list entry for FailoverThreshold can be set with the following example code:
DWORD FailoverThresholdData = 5; CLUSPROP_DWORD FailoverThresholdValue; FailoverThresholdValue.Syntax.dw = CLUSPROP_SYNTAX_LIST_VALUE_DWORD; FailoverThresholdValue.cbLength = sizeof(DWORD); FailoverThresholdValue.dw = FailoverThresholdData;
