How to Enable a Cluster Transport Cable

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

The phys-schost# prompt reflects a global-cluster prompt. Perform this procedure on a global cluster.

This procedure provides the long forms of the Oracle Solaris Cluster commands. Most commands also have short forms. Except for the long and short forms of the command names, the commands are identical.

You can also use the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager GUI to enable a cable. For GUI log-in instructions, see How to Access Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager.

  1. Assume the root role on any node in the cluster.
  2. Start the clsetup utility.
    # clsetup

    The Main Menu is displayed.

  3. Type the number for the option for accessing the Cluster Interconnect menu and press the Return key.
  4. Type the number for the option for enabling the transport cable and press the Return key.

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

  5. Verify that the cable is enabled.
    # clinterconnect show  node:adapter,adapternode
Example 7-4  Enabling a Cluster Transport Cable

This example shows how to enable a cluster transport cable on adapter net0, located on the node phys-schost-2.

[Assume the root role on any node.]
[Start the clsetup utility:]
# clsetup
[Select Cluster interconnect>Enable a transport cable.[

[Answer the questions when prompted.[
[You will need the following information.[
   You Will Need:         
Information:                        Example:
   node names             phys-schost-2
   adapter names          net0
   switch names           hub1
[Verify that the scinterconnect
command was completed successfully:]
clinterconnect  enable phys-schost-2:net0
Command completed successfully.
[Quit the clsetup Cluster Interconnect Menu and Main Menu.]
[Verify that the cable is enabled:]
# clinterconnect show  phys-schost-1:net5,hub2
Transport cable:   phys-schost-2:net0@0 ethernet-1@2    Enabled
Transport cable:   phys-schost-3:net5@1 ethernet-1@3    Enabled
Transport cable:   phys-schost-1:net5@0 ethernet-1@1    Enabled
