Using the Failover Cluster Automation Server

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

You can use the Failover Cluster Automation Server APIs to manage or administer failover clusters remotely through scripting languages. Here are the basic steps to implement the Failover Cluster Automation Server APIs:

  1. Create a Failover Cluster Automation Server Script. For an example, see Creating a Failover Cluster Automation Server Script.
  2. Use the topic Failover Cluster Automation Server Object Hierarchy to locate the objects that can perform your cluster operations.
  3. In your script, retrieve the objects and then invoke the properties and methods that perform your cluster operations. For reference information, see Failover Cluster Automation Server Reference. For examples, see the next section.

Examples

The following code examples demonstrate how to create scripts for the Failover Cluster Automation Server:
