How to Enable a Cluster Transport Cable

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

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

  1. Become superuser on any node in the cluster.

  2. Enter the scsetup(1M) utility.

    # scsetup

    The Main Menu is displayed.

  3. Access the Cluster Interconnect Menu by typing 2 (Cluster interconnect).

  4. Enable the transport cable by typing 7 (Enable a transport cable).

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

  5. Verify that the cable is enabled.

    # scconf -p | grep cable
