Generic Application

The Generic Application resource type manages cluster-unaware applications as cluster resources—as well as cluster-aware applications that are not associated with custom resource types. The Generic Application resource DLL provides only very basic application control. For example, it checks for application failure by determining whether the application's process still exists and takes the application offline by terminating the process.

The following table summarizes the characteristics of the Generic Application resource type.
