You can use cluster commands to administer server clusters from the Windows command prompt. You can also call the program from command scripts to automate many cluster administration tasks. Cluster is provided on all Windows computers.

You can administer clusters from a node of the cluster, from nodes of other clusters, or from other computers running Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 3 or later.
