To bring a resource in service:
- Select a server-specific resource instance that you want to bring in service and then select In Service from the Resource Context Menu or Resource Context Toolbar.
- A dialog appears confirming the server and resource(s) that you have selected to bring into service. This dialog will include a warning if you are bringing a dependent child resource into service without bringing its parent resource into service as well. Click In Service to bring the resource(s) into service along with any dependent child resources.
- If the output panel is enabled, the dialog closes and the results of the commands to bring the resource(s) in 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 bringing a resource in service are logged in both the LifeKeeper log and the GUI log of the server on which you want to bring the resource into service.
