About stopping VCS with options other than the -force option

When VCS is stopped by options other than -force on a system with online service groups, the groups that run on the system are taken offline and remain offline. VCS indicates this by setting the attribute IntentOnline to 0. Use the option -force to enable service groups to continue being online while the VCS engine (HAD) is brought down and restarted. The value of the IntentOnline attribute remains unchanged after the VCS engine restarts.
