Hello All,

I am trying to set IP Address & SQL Server Network Name as a dependency for my Cluster Disk in my environment through Powershell. I am getting the following error:

The command I tried to set dependencies:

Set-ClusterResourceDependency -Resource 'Cluster Disk 3' -Dependency "([SQL Network Name (SQl-FC)]) and ([IP Address (x.x.x.x)])"

Set-ClusterResourceDependency: An error occurred while setting the dependency relationship for the resource 'Cluster Disk 3'.
The cluster resource could not be found
At line:1 char:1

  • Set-ClusterResourceDependency -Resource 'Cluster Disk 3' -Dependency ...
  • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (:) [Set-ClusterResourceDependency], ClusterCmdletException
  • FullyQualifiedErrorId : ResourceNotFound,Microsoft.FailoverClusters.PowerShell.SetClusterResourceDependencyCommand

The Error says the Cluster Resource could not be found.
Verified with Get-ClusterResource command too.

Get-ClusterResource "Cluster Disk 3"

Name State OwnerGroup ResourceType


Cluster Disk 3 Online SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) Physical Disk
