Sun Cluster System Administration Guide for Solaris OS

ProcedureHow to Replace a Quorum Device

Use this procedure to replace an existing quorum device with another quorum device. You can replace a quorum device with a similar device type, such as replacing a NAS device with another NAS device, or you can replace the device with a dissimilar device, such as replacing a NAS device with a shared disk.

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.

  1. Configure a new quorum device.

    You need to first add a new quorum device to the configuration to take the place of the old device. See Adding a Quorum Device to add a new quorum device to the cluster.

  2. Remove the device that you are replacing as a quorum device.

    See How to Remove a Quorum Device to remove the old quorum device from the configuration.

  3. If the quorum device is a failed disk, replace the disk.

    Refer to the hardware procedures for your disk enclosure in the Sun Cluster 3.1 - 3.2 Hardware Administration Manual for Solaris OS.
