Shutting Down and Booting a Single Node in a Cluster

You can shut down a global-cluster node or a zone-cluster node. This section provides instructions for shutting down a global-cluster node and a zone-cluster node.

To shut down a global-cluster node, use the clnode evacuate command with the Oracle Solaris shutdown command. Use the cluster shutdown command only when shutting down an entire global cluster.

On a zone-cluster node, use the clzonecluster halt command on a global cluster to shut down a single zone-cluster node or an entire zone cluster. You can also use the clnode evacuate and shutdown commands to shut down a zone-cluster node.

For more information, see the clnode(8CL), shutdown(8), and clzonecluster(8CL) man pages.

In the procedures in this chapter, phys-schost# reflects a global-cluster prompt. The clzonecluster interactive shell prompt is clzc:schost>.

Table 4  Task Map: Shutting Down and Booting a Node
Task
Tool
Instructions
Stop a node.
For a global-cluster node, use the clnode evacuate and shutdown commands. For a zone-cluster node, use the clzonecluster halt command.
Start a node.
The node must have a working connection to the cluster interconnect to attain cluster membership.
For a global-cluster node, use the boot or b command. For a zone-cluster node, use the clzonecluster boot command.
Stop and restart (reboot) a node on a cluster.
The node must have a working connection to the cluster interconnect to attain cluster membership.
For a global-cluster node, use the clnode evacuate and shutdown commands, followed by boot or b.
For a zone-cluster node, use the clzonecluster reboot command.
Boot a node so that the node does not participate in cluster membership.
For a global-cluster node, use clnode evacuate and shutdown commands, followed by boot -x on SPARC or GRUB menu entry editing on x86.
If the underlying global cluster is booted in noncluster mode, the zone cluster node is automatically in noncluster mode.
