Cluster Resource Management

We have two  windows 2000 advanced server with Cluster admin running on them. The two servers are clustered together such that there can be fail over among the servers.
Server One has odd numbered account configured on it and server two has even accounts configured on it. such as to balance the load on the two server. In the event of shut down or failure of any of the server, the other server picks up the whole resource.
Overtime we have been having problems with the file shares resources (there are over a 1000 file share resource) not properly configured i.e share name, path, dependanies, possible owners etc. This has made failover an issue. Since it will be difficult to check all the file share resource everytime there is a problem, I am seeking a solution such as a script or a package that will export all the data in the file share i.e share name, path, dependanies, possible owners etc. to a text file for easy viewing.

My guess is that you're creating an individual file share resource for every home directory? This is not the recommended way, as it creates unnecessary load on the cluster server, not to mention extended failover time. From NT4 SP4 on, a file share resource can be created so that (first level) subfolders of the shared directory are automatically shared as well, without each share being a resource.
So, if necessary, recreate your folder structure, so that you can share out as much folders as possible with as few cluster resources as possible.
