To take a resource out of service:
- Select a server-specific resource instance that you want to take out of service and then select Out of Service from the Resource Context Menu or Resource Context Toolbar.
- A dialog appears confirming the selected resource(s) to be taken out of service. This dialog will include a warning if you are taking a dependent child resource out of service without taking its parent resource out of service as well. Click Out of Service to take the resources out of service.
- If the output panel is enabled, the dialog closes and the results of the commands to take the resource(s) out of service are shown in the output panel. If not, the dialog remains up to show these results and you click Done to finish when all results have been displayed.
- Errors that occur while taking a resource out of service are logged in both the LifeKeeper log and the GUI log of the server on which you want to take the resource out of service.
