Urgent: Where to post a question about ms server 2003 clusters RRS feed

  • Question

  • As the title says... In which forum can I ask my question about clusters?

    What I want to do is delay one service for about a minute before it autostarts.

    Just creating a new dependency service that runs a .bat file with sleep in it doesn't work. The cluster sees the batch file as started and just starts the other service while the batch is sleeping.

    I think I thought about was to make my service dependent of a dummy service and not let the cluster autostart the dummy. Then I could run a batch file that sleeps and afterwards starts the dummy. Then the service I want started will see that the dummy is up and finally autostart itself, but for this it must be possible to make a dependency that's not autostarted. Is this possible?
