SYMPTOMS

The Current Directory label and the input text box are missing in the Clusters dialog box in some language versions of Windows Server 2008. In these versions, you cannot change the CurrentDirectory property value of the cluster resource.

The following languages are affected:
  • Dutch (nl-nl)
  • Turkish (tr-tr),
  • Hungarian (hu-hu)
  • Polish (pl-pl)
  • Chinese (Simplified) (zh-cn)
  • Chinese (Traditional) (zh-tw)
  • Chinese (Hong Kong) (zh-hk)
  • Korean (ko-kr)

  2. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    cluster res "RESOURCE_NAME" /priv
    This command will list the current value of the CurrentDirectory property.

    Note In this command, RESOURCE_NAME represents the name of the target resource, such as "cmd Application."
  3. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    cluster res "RESOURCE_NAME" /priv CurrentDirectory="NEW_VALUE"
    Note In this command, NEW_VALUE represents a new property value for the CurrentDirectory property.
  4. Bring the resource offline, and then bring the resource back online for the change to take effect.
