The status or state of a resource is displayed in two formats: global resource status (across all servers) and 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
|Server State||Visual State||What it Means|
|Active||Resource is operational on this server and protected (ISP)|
|Degraded||Resource is operational on this server but not protected by a backup resource (ISU)|
|StandBy||Backup resource that can take over operation from the active resource (OSU)|
|Failed||Problem with resource detected on this server. For example, an attempt to bring the resource in-service failed (OSF)|
|UNKNOWN||Resource has not been initialized (ILLSTATE) or SIOS Protection Suite is not running on this server|
|Empty Panel||Server does not have the resource defined|
Global Resource Status
|Description||Visual State||What it Means / Causes|
|Normal||Resource is active (ISP) and all backups are active|
|Warning||Resource is active (ISP); one or more backups are marked as unknown or failed (OSF)|
