The Shutdown Strategy is a LifeKeeper configuration option that governs whether or not resources are switched over to a backup server when a server is shut down. The options are:
|Do Not Switch Over Resources (default)||LifeKeeper will not bring resources in service on a backup server during an orderly shutdown.|
|Switch Over Resources||LifeKeeper will bring resources in service on a backup server during an orderly shutdown.|
The Shutdown Strategy is set by default to “Do Not Switch Over Resources.” You should decide which strategy you want to use on each server in the cluster, and if you wish, change the Shutdown Strategy to“Switch Over Resources”.
For each server in the cluster:
- On the Edit Menu, point to Server and then click Properties.
- Select the server to be modified.
- On the General Tab of the Server Properties dialog, select the Shutdown Strategy.
