This issue has been solved. See solution.

Lets suppose i  have disable the Service grp on the virtual cluster.And when node 0 goes down,does virual cluster will switch to node 1?

How to check whether failover was successful?What command can be used?or the path from which it can be seen?on node 0 or node 1 ,we can see the logs?

If you disable or freeze the service group, then if node 0 goes down, the service group will not online - this is the point of disabling or freezing.  Disabling means VCS stops monitoring the resources where as freezing still monitors the resources and so reports their state (online or offline), but takes no action when resources or nodes go down.


hastatus -sum
shows you state of service group and which system it is online on - if it is online then failover was succesful.  The command will also show you the status of the systems and any failed resources and any resources or service groups that are frozen or disabled.  
To see the path configured to mount shared storage run:
hares -display -attribute MountPath
The above commands work on both UNIX and Windows
The main log is engine_A.log in:
program files\cluster server\logs
