Immediately Suspending Automatic Recovery by Killing Methods

When you suspend the automatic recovery actions of a resource group, resource methods that are executing are allowed to run until they are completed. If a serious problem occurs, you might need to suspend the automatic recovery actions of a resource group immediately. To do so, you specify the –k command option, which kills the following methods:

  • Prenet_start

  • Start

  • Monitor_start

  • Monitor_stop

  • Stop

  • Postnet_stop

Note -  The Init, Fini, Boot, and Update methods are not killed when you include this command option.

However, if you immediately suspend automatic recovery actions by killing methods, you might leave one of its resources in an error state such as Start_failed or Stop_failed. You must clear these error states yourself.

Note -  You can also use the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager browser interface to stop or start monitoring on a resource, or suspend a resource group.
