Adds a cryptographic key checkpoint or registry checkpoint for a resource.
Add-ClusterCheckpoint [[-ResourceName] <String>] [-Cluster <String>] [-CryptoCheckpointKey <String>] [-CryptoCheckpointName <String>] [-CryptoCheckpointType <String>]
[-InputObject <PSObject>] [-RegistryCheckpoint <String>] [<CommonParameters>]
The Add-ClusterCheckpoint cmdlet adds a cryptographic key checkpoint or registry checkpoint for a resource.
Checkpoints help provide failover support for applications that store configuration information locally instead of or in addition to storing information in the cluster
configuration database. Applications might store information locally in two ways. One way is to store configuration information in the registry on the local server; another
way is to use cryptographic keys on the local server.
