ProcedureHow to Recover From the Timing Out of the START Method

This procedure provides the long forms of the Sun Cluster maintenance commands. Most commands also have short forms. Except for the forms of the command names, the commands are identical. For a list of the commands and their short forms, see Appendix A, Sun Cluster Object-Oriented Commands, in Sun Cluster Data Services Planning and Administration Guide for Solaris OS.

  1. Become superuser or assume a role that provides solaris.cluster.admin RBAC authorization.

  2. On the node where the START method timed out, take offline the RAC framework resource group.

    To perform this operation, switch the primary nodes of the resource group to the other nodes where this group is online.

    # clresourcegroup switch -n nodelist resource-group
    -n nodelist

    Specifies a comma-separated list of other cluster nodes on which resource-group is online. Omit from this list the node where the START method timed out.


    Specifies the name of the RAC framework resource group. If this resource group was created by using the clsetup utility, the name of the resource group is rac-framework-rg.

  3. On all cluster nodes that can run Sun Cluster Support for Oracle RAC, bring the RAC framework resource group online.

    # clresourcegroup online resource-group

    Specifies that the resource group that you brought offline in Step 2 is to be moved to the MANAGED state and brought online.
