Cluster.exe in a script to add a Generic Service (Remote Desktop Connection Broker)

Scripting the creation of your clusters or the resources you want to add in your cluster? Some services are not available as named resources, but you can add them as a Generic Service. By email I got a question about the Remote Desktop Connection Broker, which is not available as a named resource type but as a generic service. This means you’ll need to know the service name of the service you wish to add. Below I have a script creating a cluster group and adding the remote desktop connection broker.

If you’re going to use it you’ll need to edit the IP-addresses, group name and cluster name.

REM CREATE CLUSTER GROUP AND ADD REMOTE DESKTOP CONNECTION BROKER
cluster group "RCB" /CREATE
cluster res "RCB" /create /group:"RCB" /type:"Network Name" /priv name=RCBdnsname=RCB
cluster res "IP Address 192.168.10.60" /create /group:"RCB" /type:"IP Address" /priv address=192.168.10.70 subnetmask=255.255.255.0
cluster res "RCB" /adddep:"IP Address 192.168.10.70"
cluster group "RCB" /on
cluster myClusterName res “RCB” /create /group:GenSvcGroup /type:"Generic Service"
cluster myClusterName res “RCB” /prop RestartAction="0"
REM HERE WE ADD THE SERVICE
cluster myClusterName res “RCB” /priv ServiceName=TSSDIS
cluster myClusterName res “RCB” /priv StartupParameters="-k netsvcs"
cluster myClusterName res “RCB” /on
