ProcedureHow to Remove a Node From a Zone Cluster

You can remove a node from a zone cluster by halting the node, uninstalling it, and removing the node from the configuration. If you decide later to add the node back into the zone cluster, follow the instructions in Table 8–1. Most of these steps are performed from the global-cluster node.

  1. Become superuser on a node of the global cluster.

  2. Shut down the zone-cluster node you want to remove by specifying the node and its zone cluster.

    phys-schost# clzonecluster halt -n node zoneclustername

    You can also use the clnode evacuate and shutdown commands within a zone cluster.

  3. Uninstall the zone-cluster node.

    phys-schost# clzonecluster uninstall -n node zoneclustername
  4. Remove the zone-cluster node from the configuration.

    Use the following commands:

    phys-schost# clzonecluster configure zoneclustername

    clzc:sczone> remove node physical-host=zoneclusternodename
  5. Verify that the node was removed from the zone cluster.

    phys-schost# clzonecluster status
