10.4 Creating Cluster Resources

Cluster resources must be created for every shared file system or server that you run on servers in your cluster. Cluster resources can include websites, email servers, databases, and any other server-based applications or services you want to make available to users at all times.

  1. In iManager, select Clusters > My Clusters.

  2. Select the cluster that you want to manage.

    If the cluster does not appear in your list, add the cluster to your list as described in Section 8.2, Setting Up a Personalized List of Clusters to Manage.

  3. Select the Cluster Options tab.

  4. On the Cluster Options page, click the New link.

  5. Specify Resource as the resource type you want to create by clicking the Resource radio button, then click Next.

  6. Specify the name of the resource you want to create.

    NOTE:Do not use periods in cluster resource names. Client for Open Enterprise Servers interpret periods as delimiters. If you use a space in a cluster resource name, that space is converted to an underscore.

  7. In the Inherit From Template field, specify one of the available templates, such as the Generic_FS_Template.

    For information about cluster resource templates, see Section 10.3, Using Cluster Resource Templates.

  8. Select the Define Additional Properties check box, then click Next.

  9. If you are creating a new cluster resource, continue with Configuring a Load Script for a Cluster Resource.
