How to Check the Status of the Cluster Interconnect

You can also accomplish this procedure by using the SunPlex Manager GUI. See the SunPlex Manager online help for more information.

You do not need to be logged in as superuser to perform this procedure.

  1. Check the status of the cluster interconnect.

    # scstat -W

  2. Refer to the following for common status messages.

    Status Message 

    Description and Possible Action 

    Path online

    The path is currently functioning correctly. No action is necessary. 

    Path waiting

    The path is currently being initialized. No action is necessary. 

    Path faulted

    The path is not functioning. This can be a transient state when paths are going between the waiting and online state. If the message persists when scstat -W is rerun, take corrective action.
