Help on using Cluster to Start a Service

I'm running iPlanet web server with Windows 2000 Advanced Server and Clustering.

When I install iPlanet on each maching it names the service:

server1.whatever.com on the first server

and

server2.whatever.com on the second server.

If I make the resource only work on the server for the service it's trying to start, the other resource for the down server shows up as an error and everything fails back.

Is there a clean way to have a resource dependent on the actual box that has control?

Thanks,
Craig

iPlanet is not a cluster aware application.  you'll have to create all iPlanet related cluster resources manually.  also, it's wise to group all iPlanet resources into the same resource group.  this way, you can bring down all iPlanet resources without effecting the other resources.

since this is a web server application, may be you want to look into load balancing instead.
