Sun Cluster Data Services Planning and Administration Guide for Solaris OS

Enabling a Resource

You can enable a resource that you neglected to enable when you brought online a resource group.

ProcedureHow to Enable a Resource

Note –

Perform this procedure from any cluster node.

Before You Begin

Ensure that you have created and have the name of the resource that you intend to enable.

  1. On a cluster member, become superuser or assume a role that provides solaris.cluster.admin RBAC authorization.

  2. Enable the resource.

    # clresource enable [-n node-zone-list] resource
    -n node-zone-list

    Specifies a comma-separated, ordered list of nodes on which to enable the resource. If you specify a global-cluster non-voting node, the format of each entry in the list is node:zone. In this format, node specifies the node name and zone specifies the name of a global-cluster non-voting node. To specify the global-cluster voting node, or to specify a node without global-cluster non-voting nodes, specify only node.

    This list is optional. If you omit this list, the resource is enabled on all nodes in its resource group's node list.

    Note –

    If you specify more than one node with the -n option, you can specify only one resource.


    Specifies the name of the resource that you want to enable.

  3. Verify that the resource has been enabled.

    # clresource status

    The output from this command indicates the state of the resource that you have enabled.
