If you create a new resource within an empty group, the Resource wizard may present a Dependencies page that is empty.


The Cluster Administrator tool displays the current state of the cluster. Because there are no other resources in the group, a dependency cannot be created for the resource being created. Therefore, the list of possible resources with which to establish a dependency is blank. A group must have more than one resource before dependencies may be established. The appearance of the empty dependencies page may be confusing to some administrators.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows NT Server, Enterprise Edition version 4.0. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
