Service group states
when doing an activity i bought 2 non critcal resources offline .them my service group state was partial .Is there any diffrence in a state partial|online and partial ?
If we try to bring a critical resource offline the service group would failover to other node .But when doing a activity if we dont want the service group to be failed over we need to make the critcal resource to non-critical and start the activity ?
Thanks and regards,
If you use VCS to bring
If you use VCS to bring critical resource offline, it will not failover.
It will only failover if you use methods outside of VCS to take resource offline (like OS kill command or db shutdown command).
I don't have access to any cluster right now, but partial|online and partial is probably they same, depending on which command output you are looking at.
Maybe show us what you see?
