Registry Checkpointing

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Some clustered services and applications store information outside of the cluster configuration database, in registry keys that the Cluster service monitors and replicates between nodes. If the Cluster service is prevented from writing to such a registry key, the corresponding cluster resource might not function correctly.
