Hi all,

I am pretty new to clustering.  I have a basic concept but no real working knowledge.  I have to do some work on a server that is a part of a cluster.  It's a print server cluster.  I guess what I need to know is, when I look into the cluster administrator...do I have to "move" the groups AND the resources to the box that will be staying up?? or just the groups?  when I am done, I assume I just have to move them back over, correct?

Each group in a cluster is a logical unit; all resources in the group have to failover if one of the resources creates an error.
In other words: just move the groups to the cluster node that stays up.
Move them back when you're done.
Before you're doing any maintenance work on the "free" node, right-click the node in Cluster Manager and choose "Pause node"; this makes sure that the node doesn't accept any resources while it's paused.
