Administering attributes

The Cluster Management Console enables you to edit the attributes of cluster objects (clusters, service groups, systems, resources, and resource types). Ensure that the cluster configuration is open (in read/write mode) before editing attributes. Attributes for an object are available in any object summary view, such as the Cluster:Summary view or the Resource:Summary view. After navigating to an object summary view, click the Attributes tab on the secondary tab bar.

Changes to certain attributes, such as a webip attribute, may involve taking the service group offline, modifying the configuration file, and bringing the group back online.
