parameter block

A buffer that contains the data for one or more properties, or a pointer to the data. Entries in a property table contain an offset to a parameter block.

partitioned

A state in which one or more of the nodes in a server cluster cannot communicate with the other nodes.

paused

State that applies to a node that is a fully active member in the server cluster but cannot host groups. The paused state is provided for an administrator to perform maintenance.

pending

State that refers to a resource being brought online or taken offline.

persistent arbitration

The process by which a node gains control of the quorum resource and defends its control. The SCSI reserve and release functions can be used to implement this type of arbitration support.

Physical Disk resource

A cluster-capable disk being managed as a cluster resource by the Physical Disk resource type

.

possible owner

A node on which a resource is capable of running. Each resource is associated with a list of possible owners. Resources will fail over only to nodes that are listed as possible owners.

preferred owner

A node on which a group prefers to run. Each group is associated with a list of preferred owners sorted in order of preference. During failover, the group is moved to the next preferred node in the preferred owner list.

Print Spooler resource

A print spooler being managed as a cluster resource by the Print Spooler resource type

.

private property

An attribute possessed by an individual instance of a cluster object. Other instances may or may not possess the same property.

property

An attribute associated with a cluster object that describes an identity or behavior for the object. A property can consist of multiple property values, each of which can consist of multiple data values. For example, if a property consists of multiple DWORD arrays, each array is considered a property value, and each array element is considered a data value.

property access

A characteristic of a property that determines the user's ability to change the property. A property's access can be read/write or read-only.

property list

A collection of information used to describe multiple properties in control code operations. Each entry in a property list consists of a value list containing a property name and one or more property values. Each property value, in turn, consists of one or more data values.

property scope

A characteristic of a property that determines which objects the property applies to. A property can be common or private in scope.

property status

A characteristic of a private property that determines whether the property must have a value. Private properties can have a status of required (must have a valid value) or optional (does not need a value).

property table

An array of RESUTIL_PROPERTY_ITEM structures used to store multiple properties.

property value

One of the values associated with a multivalue property. A cluster object property consists of one or more property values, each consisting of one or more data values. For example, if a property consists of multiple DWORD arrays, each array is considered a property value, and each array element is considered a data value.

provider

A provider is a resource with one or more dependent resources. For example, the netname resource depends on the IP1 or IP2 resources. In that case, IP1 and IP2 are both providers in relation to netname.
