Resynchronizing a Partnership

This section provides information about resynchronizing partnership information between partner clusters.

If a cluster that is a member of a partnership fails, when the cluster restarts, it detects whether the partnership parameters have been modified while it was down. You decide which partnership configuration information you want to keep: the information on the cluster that failed or the information on the failover cluster. Then, resynchronize the configuration of the partnership accordingly.

Use the geoadm status command or Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager to check whether you need to resynchronize a partnership.

  • If the Configuration status is Synchronization Status Error, you need to synchronize the partnership.

  • If the Local status is Partnership Error, do not resynchronize the partnership. Instead, wait until a heartbeat exchange occurs.

How to Resynchronize a Partnership

Perform this procedure to resynchronize partnership configuration information.

Note -  You can also accomplish this procedure by using the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager browser interface. Click Partnerships, highlight the name of the partnership, and click Update Partnership. For Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager log-in instructions, see How to Access Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager in Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.3 System Administration Guide.

Before You Begin

Ensure that the following conditions are met:


Caution  -  Resynchronizing a partnership overwrites the partnership configuration on the cluster where the command is run with the information from the partner cluster.

  1. Log in to a node on the cluster that needs to be synchronized with the information retrieved from the partner cluster.
  2. Resynchronize the partnership.
    # geops update partnership-name

    Specifies the name of the partnership

Example 7  Resynchronizing a Partnership
