Flushing a service group

When a service group is brought online or taken offline, the resources within the group are brought online or taken offline. If the online operation or offline operation hangs on a particular resource, flush the service group to clear the WAITING TO GO ONLINE or WAITING TO GO OFFLINE states from its resources. Flushing a service group typically leaves the service group in a partial state. After you complete this process, resolve the issue with the particular resource (if necessary) and proceed with starting or stopping the service group.

Note:

The flush operation does not halt the resource operations (such as online, offline, and clean) that are running. If a running operation succeeds after a flush command was fired, the resource state might change depending on the operation.
