Dynamic Reconfiguration With Cluster Interconnects

There are a few issues you must consider when completing dynamic reconfiguration (DR) operations on cluster interconnects.

Caution – Caution –

Sun Cluster requires that each cluster node has at least one functioning path to every other cluster node. Do not disable a private interconnect interface that supports the last path to any cluster node.

Complete the following procedures in the order indicated when performing DR operations on public network interfaces.
