  2. Select Configure As Global from the menu.
  3. Enter the details of the service group to modify (appgroup).
  4. From the Available Clusters box, click the clusters on which the group can come online. The local cluster is not listed as it is implicitly defined to be part of the ClusterList. Click the right arrow to move the cluster name to the ClusterList box.
  5. Select the policy for cluster failover:
  6. Click Next.
  7. Enter or review the connection details for each cluster. Click the Configure icon to review the remote cluster information for each cluster.
