To stop a resource group from continuously switching from one node to another when a START or STOP method fails, bring it to a quiescent state. To bring a resource group to a quiescent state, you issue the clresourcegroup quiesce command.
When you quiesce a resource group, resource methods that are executing are allowed to run until they are completed. If a serious problem occurs, you might need to quiesce a resource group immediately. To do so, you specify the –k command option, which kills the following methods:
However, if you immediately quiesce a resource group by killing methods, you might leave one of its resources in an error state such as Start_failed or Stop_failed. You must clear these error states yourself.
