Programming with the Failover Cluster Automation Server

[The Failover Cluster Automation Server is available for use in Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions.]

The object-oriented nature of the Failover Cluster Automation Server means that almost all failover cluster programming tasks will involve the following steps:

  1. Determine the cluster operation you need to perform.
  2. Find the Failover Cluster Automation Server object that has a property or method to accomplish the operation.
  3. Determine how to obtain the object in step 2. The Object Hierarchy is useful for this.
  4. Obtain the object and invoke the property or method.

The following sections present examples of common programming tasks:
