Cluster Verification Utility


Microsoft releases sample utilities from the Windows 2000 Resource kits. Cluster Verification Utility is available for free download.
It is included in the Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit only. This tool verifies
that a two-node cluster is set up properly. It performs two tests:


  • Configuration Verification: verify that the two cluster nodes can
    communicate with each other, and that both have access to the same shared SCSI
    drive or drives.
  • Shared SCSI Drive Diagnostic Verification: tests a shared SCSI bus for
    functionality as required by the Cluster service systems.
    This test is
    should not be run on a cluster in production. The test destroys data on all
    disks on the shared bus.

There are a fair number of Resource kit samples available for download. Check
Microsoft’s Sample Tools for the list of current tools
available for download.
