What's the question exactly? If you have active/passive configuration then simply specify the cluster name and the resource should ALWAYS be present on the active cluster. 

To backup NONE cluster resource files, use the nodenames.

If you follow the clustring information for Windows you pretty much have it for Linux. Remember though the backup comes from the virtual node so you can restore it to either node.   

The above comments are not to be construed as an official stance of the company I work for; hell half the time they are not even an official stance for me.

Under OES there is not an active/passive context.  In the Policy I used the Virtual Server Name (it_vs) as the Client and the Shared Resource (IT_SERVER) in the Backup Selections. It errors with 69-invalid file list.  How do I get Netbackup to recognize the Shared Resource?

Can you post output of "bppllist IT_SERVER -L"?
