Sun Cluster System Administration Guide for Solaris OS

ProcedureHow to Enable a Cluster Transport Cable

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

This option is used to enable an already existing cluster transport cable.

The phys-schost# prompt reflects a global-cluster prompt. Perform this procedure on a global cluster.

This procedure provides the long forms of the Sun Cluster commands. Most commands also have short forms. Except for the long and short forms of the command names, the commands are identical. For a list of the commands and their short forms, see Appendix B, Sun Cluster Object-Oriented Commands.

  1. Become superuser on any node in the cluster.

  2. Start the clsetup utility.

    # clsetup

    The Main Menu is displayed.

  3. Type the number that corresponds to the option for accessing the Cluster Interconnect menu and press the Return key.

  4. Type the number that corresponds to the option for enabling the transport cable and press the Return key.

    Follow the instructions when prompted. You need to provide both the node and the adapter names of one of the endpoints of the cable that you are trying to identify.

  5. Verify that the cable is enabled.

    # clinterconnect show  node:adapter,adapternode

Example 7–4 Enabling a Cluster Transport Cable

This example shows how to enable a cluster transport cable on adapter qfe-1, located on the node phys-schost-2.

[Become superuser on any node.]
[Start the clsetup utility:]
# clsetup
[Select Cluster interconnect>Enable a transport cable.[

[Answer the questions when prompted.[
[You will need the following information.[
   You Will Need:         
Information:                        Example:
   node names             phys-schost-2
   adapter names          qfe1
   switch names           hub1
[Verify that the scinterconnect
 command was completed successfully:]
clinterconnect  enable phys-schost-2:qfe1
Command completed successfully.
[Quit the clsetup Cluster Interconnect Menu and Main Menu.]
[Verify that the cable is enabled:]
# clinterconnect show  phys-schost-1:qfe2,hub2
  Transport cable:   phys-schost-2:qfe1@0 ethernet-1@2    Enabled
  Transport cable:   phys-schost-3:qfe0@1 ethernet-1@3    Enabled
  Transport cable:   phys-schost-1:qfe0@0 ethernet-1@1    Enabled
