- Unextend a Resource Hierarchy – Unextends (removes) a DB2 resource hierarchy from a single server in the LifeKeeper cluster.
- Create Dependency – Creates a child dependency between an existing resource hierarchy and another resource instance and propagates the dependency changes to all applicable servers in the cluster.
- Delete Dependency – Deletes a resource dependency and propagates the dependency changes to all applicable servers in the cluster.
