How do I run a script at failover/failback on an AIX HACMP cluster?

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have a 2-node AIX HACMP cluster in which I'd like the active node to run a script when it switches to the other (standby) node. I've done a little research and found references to a startserver script and a stopserver script, but I'm not familiar with the details of the process so I'm not sure of their relevance. Ideally I'd like to get cluster services to manage this process (i.e., run the script). I imagine this would happen as part of the process that moves the resource group. Any ideas?
