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.
You can also use the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager GUI to shut down a zone-cluster node, but not to remove a node. For GUI log-in instructions, see How to Access Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager.
phys-schost# clzonecluster halt –n node zoneclustername
You can also use the clnode evacuate and shutdown commands within a zone cluster.
phys-schost# clrg remove-node -n zonehostname -Z zoneclustername rg-name
If you use the procedure described in the Note in Step 2, the resource groups should be automatically removed so you might be able to skip this step.
phys-schost# clzonecluster uninstall –n node zoneclustername
Use the following commands:
phys-schost# clzonecluster configure zoneclustername
clzc:sczone> remove node physical-host=node
clzc:sczone> remove -F node physical-host=node
If you use this method to remove the last zone cluster node, you will be prompted to delete the zone cluster entirely. If you choose not to, the last node will not be removed. This deletion has the same effect as clzonecluster delete -F zoneclustername.
phys-schost# clzonecluster status
