Specifies a number of hours during which a maximum number of failover attempts, specified by FailoverThreshold, can occur. The following table summarizes the attributes of the FailoverPeriod property.
For example, if FailoverThreshold is set to 2 and FailoverPeriod is set to 1, then a node can tolerate two failover attempts of the group within any 1-hour interval. More than three failover attempts can occur, as long as they occur over an interval that is greater than 1 hour.
FailoverPeriod has a maximum value of 1193 hours. If a value for FailoverPeriod is not specified, the default value is 6 hours.
The property value portion of a property list entry for FailoverPeriod can be set with the following example code:
DWORD FailoverPeriodData = 5; CLUSPROP_DWORD FailoverPeriodValue; FailoverPeriodValue.Syntax.dw = CLUSPROP_SYNTAX_LIST_VALUE_DWORD; FailoverPeriodValue.cbLength = sizeof(DWORD); FailoverPeriodValue.dw = FailoverPeriodData;
