Troubleshooting Cluster Interconnects

This section provides a troubleshooting procedure to disable and then enable a cluster interconnect, such as cluster transport adapters and transport cables.

Do not use the ipadm commands to administer cluster transport adapters. If a transport adapter was disabled by using the ipadm disable-if command, you must use the clinterconnect commands to disable the transport path and then enable it.

This procedure requires that you have Oracle Solaris Cluster software installed. These commands must be run from a global-cluster node.

How to Enable a Cluster Interconnect


Note -  You can also use the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager browser interface to enable a cluster interconnect. Click Private Interconnects, click Cables, click the number of the cable to highlight it, then click Enable. For Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager log-in instructions, see How to Access Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager.
  1. Check the status of the cluster interconnect.
    % clinterconnect status
        
    === Cluster Transport Paths===
    Endpoint1               Endpoint2              Status
    ---------               ---------              ------
    pnode1:net1             pnode2:net1            waiting
    pnode1:net5             pnode2:net5            Path online
  2. Disable the cluster interconnect path.
    1. Check the cluster interconnect path.
      % clinterconnect show | egrep -ie "cable.*pnode1"
      Transport Cable: pnode1:net5,switch2@1
      Transport Cable: pnode1:net1,switch1@1
    2. Disable the cluster interconnect path.
      % clinterconnect disable pnode1:net1,switch1@1
  3. Enable the cluster interconnect path.
    % clinterconnect enable pnode1:net1,switch1@1
  4. Verify that the cluster interconnect is enabled.
    % clinterconnect status
        
    === Cluster Transport Paths===
    Endpoint1               Endpoint2              Status
    ---------               ---------              ------
    pnode1:net1             pnode2:net1            Path online
    pnode1:net5             pnode2:net5            Path online
