Sun Cluster System Administration Guide for Solaris OS

ProcedureHow to Check the Status of the Cluster Interconnect

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

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.

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

  1. Check the status of the cluster interconnect.

    % clinterconnect status 
  2. Refer to the following table 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. 


    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 clinterconnect status is rerun, take corrective action.

Example 7–1 Checking the Status of the Cluster Interconnect

The following example shows the status of a functioning cluster interconnect.

% clinterconnect status
