Viewing the Status of Resources

The status or state of a resource is displayed in two formats: Global Resource Status (across all servers), and the Server Resource Status (on a single server). The global resource status is shown in the Resource Hierarchy Tree in the left pane of the status window. The server resource status is found in the table cell where the resource row intersects with the server column.

Server Resource Status

The following figure shows servers with resource statuses of active, standby and unknown.

  • All resources on "wallace" are active

  • All resources on  "gromit", "pat","mike" and "batman" are standby

  • All resources on "bullwinkle" are unknown
