When to disable a resource

Typically, resources are disabled when one or more resources in the service group encounter problems and disabling the resource is required to keep the service group online or to bring it online.


Disabling a resource is not an option when the entire service group requires disabling. In that case, set the service group attribute Enabled to 0.

Use the following command to disable the resource when VCS is running:

# hares -modify resource_name Enabled 0

To have the resource disabled initially when VCS is started, set the resource's Enabled attribute to 0 in main.cf.
