Note Because of file dependencies, the most recent hotfix or feature that contains these files may also contain additional files.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section. This problem was first corrected in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4.

MORE INFORMATION

This hotfix permits the SQL Server cluster resource to use the PendingTimeout property to monitor the shut down (or offline) process. By default, the value of the PendingTimeout property is 180 seconds.

Typically, Microsoft does not recommend that you increase the value of the PendingTimeout property to more than 180 seconds. If the SQL Server cluster resource takes more than 180 seconds to shut down, investigate why the SQL Server cluster resource takes so long to shut down. If the reason is valid, set the value of the PendingTimeout property to the lowest value where shutdown can complete.

Note The value of the PendingTimeout property is read when the SQL Server cluster resource is brought online. Therefore, if you change the value of the PendingTimeout property when the SQL Server cluster resource is online, you must take the SQL Server cluster resource offline, and then bring it back online to set a new value for the PendingTimeout property.

Note If the resource monitor process uses the SQL Server resource DLL that is replaced during the installation, you must restart the server after you install the hotfix.
