If Microsoft® Exchange Server 2003 is to be run in a clustered environment, the Microsoft Windows® server operating systems load balancing and clustering services are used. Exchange does not provide a means of modifying Microsoft Windows® clustering settings programmatically. You can, however, read the current state of the Exchange cluster resources using the Exchange Server 2003 Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) providers.
