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.

Note -  You can also use the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager browser interface to enable a cable. 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. 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.
  4. Type the number for the option for enabling the transport cable.

    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

    Output is similar to the following:

    # 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
