The LifeKeeper GUI enables you to create a resource hierarchy on one server, then extend that hierarchy to one or more backup servers. LifeKeeper then automatically builds the designated hierarchies on all servers specified. LifeKeeper maintains hierarchy information in a database on each server. If you use the command line interface, you must explicitly define the hierarchy on each server.

After you create the resource hierarchy, LifeKeeper manages the stopping and starting of the resources within the hierarchy. The related topics below provide background for hierarchy definition tasks.
