G Server Control (SRVCTL) Command Reference

Use the Server Control (SRVCTL) utility to manage various components and applications in your cluster.

This appendix contains reference information for Server Control commands, including utility usage information and a comprehensive listing of the SRVCTL commands.

Note:

SRVCTL commands specific to Oracle RAC administration operations are documented in Oracle Real Application Clusters Administration and Deployment Guide

SRVCTL Usage Information

SRVCTL is installed on each node in a cluster by default. To use SRVCTL, log in to the operating system of a node and enter the SRVCTL command and its parameters in case-sensitive syntax.

  • Only use the version of SRVCTL that is provided with Oracle Database 12c on Oracle RAC databases that are created for or upgraded to Oracle Database 12c. The version of SRVCTL must be the same as the version of the object (listeners, Oracle ASM instances, Oracle RAC databases and their instances, and services) being managed. To ensure the versions are the same release, run SRVCTL commands from the Oracle home of the database or object you are managing.

  • SRVCTL does not support concurrent executions of commands on the same object. Therefore, run only one SRVCTL command at a time for each database, service, or other object.

  • When specifying a comma-delimited list as part of a SRVCTL command, there should not be any spaces between the items in the list. For example:

    srvctl add database -serverpool "serverpool1,serverpool3"
    

    When you specify a comma-delimited list in a Windows environment, you must enclose the list in double quotation marks (""). You can enclose a comma-delimited list in double quotation marks in a Linux or UNIX environment but they will be ignored.

  • If you are entering a SRVCTL command, and you want to continue the input on a new line, then you can use the operating system continuation character. In Linux, this is the backslash (\) symbol.

  • A SRVCTL command that produces no output is a successful command. Not all SRVCTL commands return a message when it completes, successfully. However, if a SRVCTL command fails, then it always returns an error message.

  • You can use the -eval parameter with several SRVCTL commands. This parameter, when you use it, enables you to simulate running a command without making any changes to the system. SRVCTL returns output that informs you what will happen if you run a particular command. For example, to know what might happen if you relocate a server:

    $ srvctl relocate server –servers "rac1" –eval –serverpool pool2
    
    Database db1
         will stop on node rac1
         will start on node rac7
         Service mySrv1
              will stop on node rac1, it will not run on any node
         Service myServ2
              will stop on node rac1
              will start on node rac6
    Server rac1
         will be moved from pool myPoolX to pool pool2
    

    The -eval parameter is available with the following commands:

    • srvctl add database

    • srvctl add service

    • srvctl add srvpool

    • srvctl modify database

    • srvctl modify service

    • srvctl modify srvpool

    • srvctl relocate server

    • srvctl relocate service

    • srvctl remove srvpool

    • srvctl start database

    • srvctl start service

    • srvctl stop database

    • srvctl stop service

Specifying Command Parameters as Keywords Instead of Single Letters

Before Oracle Database 12c, the SRVCTL command-line interface used single letter parameters. However, this imposes a limit on the number of unique parameters available for use with SRVCTL commands. SRVCTL command parameters introduced in Oracle Database 12c are full words instead of single letters, such as -multicastport and -subdomain.

To support backward compatibility, you can use a mix of single-letter parameters and new keyword parameters. New parameters introduced with keywords can be used with single letter parameters.

Note:

Starting with Oracle Database 12c, the single letter parameters are deprecated in favor of the keyword parameters to avoid using the same letter to implement different functionality depending on the command.

You can obtain the single-letter equivalents, where applicable, by adding the -compatible parameter after the -help parameter.

Character Set and Case Sensitivity of SRVCTL Object Values

SRVCTL interacts with many different types of objects. The character set and name length limitations, and whether the object name is case sensitive, can vary between object types.

Table G-1 String Restrictions for SRVCTL Object Names

Object Type Character Set Limitations Case Sensitive? Maximum Length
db_domain

Alpha-numeric characters, underscore (_), and number sign (#)

128 characters

db_unique_name

Alpha-numeric characters, underscore (_), number sign (#), and dollar sign ($); the first 8 characters must be unique because those characters are used to form instance names for policy-managed databases

No

30 characters but the first 8 characters must be unique relative to any other database in the same cluster

diskgroup_name

Naming disk groups have the same limitations as naming other database objects.

See Also: Oracle Database SQL Language Reference for more information about database object naming rules

No (all names are converted to uppercase)

instance_name

Alpha-numeric characters

Depends on the platform

15 characters

listener_name

node_name

No

scan_name

The first character must be an alphabetic character

No

server_pool

Alpha-numeric characters, underscore (_), number sign (#), period (.), and dollar sign ($); the name cannot begin with a period, contain single quotation marks (''), nor can the name be "Generic" or "Free" because those two names are reserved for the built-in server pools

250 characters

service_name

250 characters

volume_name

Alphanumeric characters; dashes (-) are not allowed and the first character must be an alphabetic character.

No

11 characters

Using SRVCTL Help

This section includes information about using context sensitive help with SRVCTL.

To see help for all SRVCTL commands, from the command line enter:

srvctl -help

To see the command syntax and a list of parameters for each SRVCTL command, from the command line enter:

srvctl command (or verb) object (or noun) -help

When you request online help for a command using -help, SRVCTL prints the full words for each parameter. You can obtain the single-letter equivalents, where applicable, by adding the -compatible parameter after the -help parameter. For example:

$ srvctl config database -help -compatible

The preceding command prints usage information for the srvctl config database command, listing all parameters as full words followed by their single-letter equivalents in parentheses, where applicable.

To see the SRVCTL version number enter:

$ srvctl -version

SRVCTL Privileges and Security

To use SRVCTL to change your Oracle RAC database configuration, log in to the operating system as the software owner of the home that you want to manage.

For example, if different users installed Oracle Database and the Oracle Grid Infrastructure, then log in as the database software owner (for example, ora_db) to manage databases and log in as the Oracle Grid Infrastructure software owner (for example, ora_asm) to manage the Oracle ASM instances.

Users who are members of the OSDBA operating system group can start and stop the database. To stop and start an Oracle ASM instance, you must be a member of the OSASM operating system group.

To create or register objects such as listeners, Oracle Notification Services, and services, you must be logged in to the operating system as the software owner of the Oracle home. The objects you create or register for that Oracle home will run under the user account of the owner of the Oracle home. Databases run as the database installation owner of the home from which they run.

To perform srvctl add operations on any object, you must be logged in as the Oracle account owner of the home on which the object runs.

For some SRVCTL commands, on Linux and UNIX systems, you must be logged in as root, and on Windows systems, you must be logged in as a user with Administrator privileges to run them. In this appendix, those commands are preceded by the root prompt (#) in the command examples.

Additional SRVCTL Topics

  • Use SRVCTL to manage Oracle-supplied resources such as listener, instances, disk groups, and networks, and CRSCTL for managing Oracle Clusterware and its resources.

    Note:

    Oracle strongly discourages directly manipulating Oracle-supplied resources (resources whose names begin with ora) using CRSCTL. This could adversely impact the cluster configuration.

  • Although you may be able to cancel running SRVCTL commands by pressing the Control-C keys, you may corrupt your configuration data by doing this.

    You are strongly advised not to attempt to terminate SRVCTL in this manner.

Deprecated SRVCTL Subprograms or Commands

A number of SRVCTL commands and parameters have been deprecated in this release.

Single Character Parameters for all SRVCTL Commands

Single-character parameters have been deprecated in Oracle Database 12c.

Use the full keyword for each parameter instead. To support older tools and scripts that still use single-character parameters, the current version of SRVCTL supports both single-character parameters and full keyword parameters.

The command reference in this appendix shows the keywords for each SRVCTL command. Table G-2 lists the deprecated single-character parameters.

SRVCTL Command Reference

A comprehensive list of SRVCTL commands to use in Oracle Grid Infrastructure environments.

SRVCTL uses the following command syntax:

srvctl command object [parameters]

In SRVCTL syntax:

  • command is a verb such as start, stop, or remove

  • object (also known as a noun) is the target or object on which SRVCTL performs the command, such as Oracle ASM or a file system. You can also use object abbreviations.

  • parameters extend the use of a preceding command combination to include additional parameters for the command. Some parameters are required while others are optional.

Note:

If specifying a comma-delimited list in a command parameter on Windows, then you must enclose the list within double quotation marks ("").

Table G-4 lists the keywords that can be used for the object portion of SRVCTL commands. You can use either the full name or the abbreviation for each object keyword. The Purpose column describes the object and the actions that can be performed on that object.

Note:

SRVCTL commands specific to Oracle RAC administration operations are documented in Oracle Real Application Clusters Administration and Deployment Guide

srvctl add asm

Adds a record for an Oracle ASM instance to the entire cluster.

This command must be run only one time from the Oracle Grid Infrastructure home.

Syntax

srvctl add asm [-listener listener_name] [-pwfile password_file_path
    [-flex [-count {number_of_instances | ALL}] | -proxy [-spfile server_parameter_file_path]]

Parameters

Table G-5 srvctl add asm Command Parameters

Parameter Description
-listener listener_name
Enter the name of a listener. If you do not specify this parameter, then the listener name defaults to LISTENER.
-pwfile password_file_path
Enter the full path to the location of the password file on Oracle ASM.
-flex [-count {number_of_instances | ALL}] | 
-proxy [-spfile server_parameter_file_path]

Specify that the Oracle ASM instances are configured as Oracle Flex ASM instances. You can optionally specify the number of Oracle ASM instances to create or that an Oracle ASM instance should be created on all nodes.

Alternatively, you can specify the -proxy parameter to configure the Oracle ASM Dynamic Volume Manager proxy instance resource. Optionally, you can specify the path to the server parameter file.

Usage Notes

To manage Oracle ASM on Oracle Database 12c installations, use the SRVCTL binary in the Oracle Grid Infrastructure home for a cluster (Grid home). If you have Oracle RAC or Oracle Database installed, then you cannot use the SRVCTL binary in the database home to manage Oracle ASM.

Example

To add a clusterware resource for Oracle ASM to every node in the cluster, use the following command:

$ srvctl add asm

srvctl config asm

Displays the configuration for all Oracle ASM instances.

Syntax

srvctl config asm [-proxy] [-detail]

Parameters

Table G-6 srvctl config asm Command Parameters

Parameter Description
-proxy

Optionally, you can use this parameter to specify whether the Oracle ASM configuration to display is a proxy instance.

-detail

Optionally, you can use this parameter to print detailed configuration information.

Usage Notes

  • Use this command only with Oracle Clusterware.

  • To manage Oracle ASM on Oracle Database 12c installations, use the SRVCTL binary in the Oracle Grid Infrastructure home for a cluster (Grid home). If you have Oracle RAC or Oracle Database installed, then you cannot use the SRVCTL binary in the database home to manage Oracle ASM.

Example

This command returns output similar to the following:
$ srvctl config asm

ASM Home: /u01/app/12.1.0/grid
ASM Listener: LISTENER
ASM instance count: 3
Password file:

srvctl disable asm

Disables the Oracle ASM proxy resource.

Oracle ASM will restart if it contains Oracle Clusterware data or if the node restarts and it was running before the node failed. The srvctl disable asm command also prevents the srvctl start asm command from starting Oracle ASM instances.

Disabling the Oracle ASM proxy resource prevents the databases and disk groups from starting because they depend on the Oracle ASM proxy resource.

Syntax

srvctl disable asm [-proxy] [-node node_name]

Parameters

Table G-7 srvctl disable asm Command Parameters

Parameter Description
-proxy

Optionally, you can use this parameter to specify whether you are disabling a proxy Oracle ASM configuration.

-node node_name

Optionally, you can specify a particular node on which you want to disable Oracle ASM.

Usage Notes

  • To manage Oracle ASM on Oracle Database 12c installations, use the SRVCTL binary in the Oracle Grid Infrastructure home for a cluster (Grid home). If you have Oracle RAC or Oracle Database installed, then you cannot use the SRVCTL binary in the database home to manage Oracle ASM.

  • Oracle ASM is part of the Oracle Clusterware stack and when OCR and voting files are stored on Oracle ASM, then Oracle ASM starts when OHASD starts the Oracle Clusterware stack. The srvctl disable asm command does not prevent the Oracle ASM instance managed by OHASD from starting. Oracle ASM, therefore, starts as needed by the Oracle Clusterware stack.

    The srvctl disable asm command prevents the Oracle ASM Oracle Clusterware proxy resource, and any resources that depend on it, from starting. So, the command prevents Oracle Clusterware-managed objects, such as databases, disk groups, and file systems that depend on Oracle ASM, from starting. For example, the srvctl start database | diskgroup | filesystem command fails to start any of those objects on nodes where the Oracle ASM Oracle Clusterware proxy resource is disabled. The command also prevents the srvctl start asm command from starting Oracle ASM on remote nodes.

Example

The following example disables Oracle ASM on a node named crmnode1:
$ srvctl disable asm -node crmnode1

srvctl enable asm

Enables an Oracle ASM instance.

Syntax

srvctl enable asm [-proxy] [-node node_name]

Parameters

Table G-8 srvctl enable asm Command Parameters

Parameter Description
-proxy

Optionally, you can use this parameter to specify whether you are enabling a proxy Oracle ASM configuration.

-node node_name

Optionally, you can specify a particular node on which you want to enable Oracle ASM.

Usage Notes

To manage Oracle ASM on Oracle Database 12c installations, use the SRVCTL binary in the Oracle Grid Infrastructure home for a cluster (Grid home). If you have Oracle RAC or Oracle Database installed, then you cannot use the SRVCTL binary in the database home to manage Oracle ASM.

Example

An example of this command is:
$ srvctl enable asm -node crmnode1

srvctl getenv asm

Displays the values for environment variables associated with Oracle ASM.

Syntax

srvctl getenv asm [-envs "name_list"]

Usage Notes

  • If you choose not use the -env parameter, then the values of all environment variables associated with Oracle ASM are displayed.

  • You can specify a comma-delimited list of the names of environment variables for which you want to retrieve the values.

Example

The following example displays the current values for all the environment variables used by Oracle ASM:
$ srvctl getenv asm

srvctl modify asm

Modifies the listener used by Oracle ASM, the disk group discovery string used by Oracle ASM, or the SPFILE used by Oracle ASM for a noncluster database or a cluster database.

Note:

To manage Oracle ASM on Oracle Database 12c installations, use the SRVCTL binary in the Oracle Grid Infrastructure home for a cluster (Grid home). If you have Oracle RAC or Oracle Database installed, then you cannot use the SRVCTL binary in the database home to manage Oracle ASM.

Syntax

srvctl modify asm [-listener listener_name] [-pwfile password_file_path]
  [-count {number_of_instances | ALL}] [-diskstring asm_diskstring]
  [-spfile spfile_path_name [-proxy] [-force]]

Parameters

Parameter Description

-clients @netgroup1,*.us.domain.com,16.140.0.0, hostname1

Note: You can use the -clients parameter only for Linux systems. Use the -options parameter for Solaris and AIX systems.

-options nfs_client_string

Use this parameter to modify the export options for the export file system.

Usage Notes

  • You must run this command as root user on Linux and UNIX platforms.

  • You must start and stop the NFS export before any changes you make take effect.

Example

The following command example modifies the path of an export file system named exportfs1:

# srvctl modify exportfs -name exportfs1 -path /mnt/racdb1

srvctl remove exportfs

Removes the specified export file system configuration.

Syntax

srvctl remove exportfs -name exportfs_name [-force]

Enter the unique name of the export file system you want to remove.

-force

Use this parameter to ignore any dependencies and forcibly remove the export file system.

Usage Notes

  • You must run this command as root user on Linux and UNIX platforms.

  • If you do not use the -force parameter, then you must first stop the export file system you want to remove before you remove it.

  • If you use the -force parameter, then the resulting configuration can cause errors when attempting to shut down the Oracle Clusterware stack.

Examples

To remove the stopped export file system named export1:

# srvctl remove exportfs -name export1

To remove a running export file system, leaving it exported:

# srvctl remove exportfs -name export1 -force

srvctl add filesystem

Adds a device containing a file system (Oracle Automatic Storage Management Cluster File System (Oracle ACFS) or other) to the Oracle Clusterware stack for automount and high availability.

An Oracle ACFS file system resource is typically created for use with application resource dependency lists. For example, if an Oracle ACFS file system is configured for use as an Oracle Database home, then a resource created for the file system can be included in the resource dependency list of the Oracle Database application. This will cause the file system and stack to be automatically mounted because of the start action of the database application.

Syntax

srvctl add filesystem -device volume_device -path mountpoint_path
   [-volume volume_name] [-diskgroup disk_group_name]
   [-node node_list | -serverpool server_pool_list] [-user user_list]
   [-fstype {ACFS | EXT3 | EXT4}] [-fsoptions options] [-description description]
   [-appid application_id] [-autostart {ALWAYS | NEVER | RESTORE}]

Note:

Oracle supports the EXT3 and EXT4 values for the -fstype parameter only for Linux.

Parameters

Table G-39 srvctl add filesystem Command Parameters

Parameter Description
-device volume_device

Specify the path to the file system volume device you want to add.

-path mountpoint_path

Specify the mount point path that is used to set up dependencies on other resources for nested mounts. This must be an absolute path.

-volume volume_name

Optionally, you can specify the name of the volume.

-diskgroup disk_group_name

Optionally, you can specify the name of the Oracle ACFS disk group to which you want to add the device.

-node node_list | -serverpool server_pool_list

Optionally, you can specify a comma-delimited list of nodes on which to mount the file system device. If you specify a list of nodes or a server pool, then SRVCTL creates a single-node file system resource. Without any nodes or server pools, SRVCTL creates a file system resource that runs on every cluster node.

Alternatively, you can specify a comma-delimited list of server pools in which a file system will run. If you specify a list of server pools, then you dynamically limit the number or type of nodes on which a file system will run. This does not count as a cluster-wide file system for later usage that may require a cluster-wide Oracle ACFS resource, such as HANFS.

Note: Nodes and server pools are mutually exclusive.

-user user_list

Optionally, you can specify a comma-delimited list of users authorized to mount and unmount the file system.

If you specify no users, then only root can mount and unmount the file system. If the file system is for Oracle Database software, then specify the name of the Oracle home owner.

-fstype {ACFS | EXT3 | EXT4}

Optionally, you can specify the type of file system to be mounted. The default value is ACFS.

If the type of file system to be mounted is not ACFS, then it must be a single-node file system, and you must specify -node or -serverpool.

-fsoptions options

Optionally, you can specify options used to mount the file system. The options are file system and operating system dependent.

-description description

Optionally, you can specify a description of the file system. This is stored as an attribute for later viewing by an administrator.

-appid application_id

Optionally, you can specify an application ID, which is a unique identifier used to group file systems into logical groupings. You can use this method to group file systems that may be different on different nodes but are used by an application that must have a dependency on the resource type, which is ora.id.fs.type.

-autostart {ALWAYS | NEVER | RESTORE}

Optionally, you can specify the file system resource autostart policy.

  • ALWAYS: The file system resource always automatically starts.
  • NEVER: The file system does not automatically start.
  • RESTORE: The file system is restored to its last state. This is the default option.

Usage Notes

  • Use this command only with Oracle Clusterware.

  • You must run this command as root user on Linux and UNIX platforms, or as an Administrator user on Windows platforms.

  • This command must be run only one time from the Oracle Grid Infrastructure home.

  • To manage Oracle ACFS on Oracle Database 12c installations, use the SRVCTL binary in the Oracle Grid Infrastructure home for a cluster (Grid home). If you have Oracle RAC or Oracle Database installed, then you cannot use the SRVCTL binary in the database home to manage Oracle ACFS.

Examples

To add the d1volume1-295 disk device in the disk group RAC_DATA as the Oracle ACFS volume VOLUME1 with a mount point of /oracle/cluster1/acfs:
# srvctl add filesystem -device /dev/asm/d1volume1-295
  -path /oracle/cluster1/acfs1
To add an Oracle ACFS file system on the dynamic volume device asm-test-55, with this file system mounted on one of the specified nodes at a time:
# srvctl add filesystem -fstype ACFS -device asm-test-55 -path myacfs
 -node node1,node2,node3

srvctl config filesystem

srvctl add gns

Adds the Grid Naming Service (GNS) to a cluster when you are using a DHCP public network or creating a client cluster.

Syntax

Use the srvctl add gns command with one of the following syntax models:

To add GNS to a cluster that is not currently running GNS:

srvctl add gns [-domain domain_name] -vip {vip_name | ip_address} [-skip] [-verbose]

To change a cluster that is not running GNS to be a client cluster of another cluster that is running GNS:

srvctl add gns -clientdata file_name

To add a secondary GNS to a cluster:

srvctl add gns -vip vip_name | ip_address -clientdata file_name

Parameters

Table G-43 srvctl add gns Command Parameters

Parameter Description
-domain domain_name

The network subdomain that is used for Forward DNS Lookup of cluster IP addresses. You can only use this parameter if you specify -vip, and you must use this parameter if the cluster to which you are adding GNS has a GNS zone delegation and you are using DHCP. The cluster to which you add GNS using -vip with the -domain parameters becomes a server cluster.

If you do not specify -domain, then SRVCTL adds GNS without a domain.

-vip {vip_name | ip_address}

Specify either the virtual IP (VIP) name or IP address on which GNS listens for DNS requests. You cannot use -vip with -clientdata.

Use the -domain parameter with -vip to make the cluster to which you are adding GNS a server cluster.

-skip Specify this parameter to skip the reachability check of the VIP address.
-clientdata path_to_file

Specify the path to the file you created with the srvctl export gns command that contains the GNS credentials. You must copy this file to a node in the cluster you are adding before running the srvctl add gns command.

The cluster to which you add GNS using -clientdata becomes either a client cluster or a secondary GNS.

You can only use the -clientdata parameter with the -vip parameter when you are adding a secondary GNS.

-verbose Verbose output.

Usage Notes

  • You must run this command as root user on Linux and UNIX platforms, or as an Administrator user on Windows platforms.

  • When you are adding GNS to a cluster for the first time, use the -vip parameter with the -domain parameter.

  • When you are adding GNS to a cluster using the -clientdata parameter, you must first export the GNS data to a file and manually copy the file to a node in the cluster you are adding. Use the -clientdata parameter and run this command on any node in the cluster.

  • You can only specify the -vip and -clientdata parameters at the same time when you are adding a secondary GNS.

Examples

To add GNS to a cluster, making it a server cluster:

# srvctl add gns -vip 192.168.16.17 -domain cluster.mycompany.com

To add GNS to a cluster, making it a client cluster:

# srvctl add gns -clientdata /tmp/gnsdata

srvctl export gns

Exports Grid Naming Service (GNS) instance data to a file that you can use when you are either moving GNS from one server cluster to another or when you are creating a client cluster.

SRVCTL extracts the data from OCR. Exported data includes:

  • The credentials used to authorize users, which includes the VIP address on which the server listens

  • The names and DNS records kept in GNS

Syntax

srvctl export gns {-instance path_to_file | {-clientdata path_to_file -role {CLIENT|SECONDARY} [-version]}}

Parameters

Table G-45 srvctl export gns Command Parameters

Parameter Description
-instance path_to_file

Use this parameter to specify the file to which GNS instance data is written, when you are moving GNS from one server cluster to another.

-clientdata path_to_file -role {CLIENT|SECONDARY}

Use this parameter to specify the file to which GNS credentials data is written, when you are adding a client cluster to create a file that contains credentials that the client cluster accesses to perform name management operations on the server cluster.

You must also use the -role parameter to specify a role for which the client data will be exported.

-version

Optionally, you can use this parameter to specify the version for which the client data will be generated.

Example

The following command exports the GNS credentials data to a file named gns.txt:

$ srvctl export gns -clientdata /temp/gnsdata/gns.txt

srvctl import gns

The srvctl import gns command imports data from a file that you create when you run the srvctl export gns command. Use this command when you want to locate GNS to a different server cluster.

When you import GNS data, SRVCTL stores the credentials and places the record data into OCR. If another GNS instance is running or data for another instance is encountered during the import procedure, then an error occurs.

This command also makes the cluster in which you run it the server cluster.

srvctl config vm [-name unique_name]

Usage Notes

Specify the unique name of the virtual machine resource for which you want to display the configuration information. If you do not specify a particular virtual machine resource, then the command displays all of the virtual machine resources in the cluster.

Example

This command displays output similar to the following, depending on the command syntax used:

$ srvctl config vm -name vmres1

VM resource name: vmres1
VMs: vm1, y, vm3
VM Names: x, y, z
VM IDs: vm1, vm2, vm3
Server pool: vmpool
Server category:
Nodes:
Stop Timeout: 7
Check Interval: 5
VM resource "vmres1" is enabled.
VM resource is individually enabled on nodes:
VM resource is individually disabled on nodes:
VM resource is individually disabed for VMs: vm2,vm3
$

$ srvctl config vm

vmres1
vmres2
vmres3
$

srvctl disable vm

Disables a virtual machine resource.

Syntax

srvctl disable vm -name unique_name [-vm "vm_list" | -node node_name]

Parameters

Table G-86 srvctl disable vm Command Parameters

Parameter Description
-name unique_name

Specify the unique name of the virtual machine resource you want to disable.

-vm "vm_list"

Specify the name or ID, or a list of names or IDs enclosed in double quotation marks ("") of the virtual machines on which the named resource resides. If you specify this parameter, then SRVCTL enables the cardinality instance matching that name or ID.

-node node_name

Alternatively, specify the name of the node on which the virtual machine resides. If you specify this parameter, then SRVCTL does not allow any instances of the specified resource to run on that node.

Usage Notes

If you do not specify any of the optional parameters, then SRVCTL disables the virtual machine resource, and the enabled or disabled states of all the nodes are purged, but the state of the virtual machines within the resource remains unchanged.

Example

An example of this command is:

$ srvctl disable vm -name vmres -vm "vm1,vm2,vm3"

srvctl enable vm

Enables a virtual machine resource.

Syntax

srvctl enable vm -name unique_name [-vm "vm_list" | -node node_name]

Parameters

Table G-87 srvctl enable vm Command Parameters

Parameter Description
-name unique_name

Specify the name of the virtual machine resource you want to enable.

-vm vm_list

Specify the name or ID, or a list of names or IDs enclosed in double quotation marks ("") of the virtual machines on which the named resource resides. If you specify this parameter, then SRVCTL disables the cardinality instance matching that name or ID.

-node node_name

Alternatively, specify the name of the node on which the virtual machine resides. If you specify this parameter, then SRVCTL does not allow any instances of the specified resource to run on that node.

Usage Notes

If you do not specify any of the optional parameters, then SRVCTL enables the virtual machine resource, and the enabled or disabled states of all the nodes are purged, but the state of the virtual machines within the resource remains unchanged.

Example

An example of this command is:

$ srvctl enable -name vmres -node node3

srvctl modify vm

Modifies the virtual machine resource configuration.

Syntax

srvctl modify vm -name uniquee_name [-addvm "list_of_vms" | -removevm "list_of_vms"
   [-serverpool server_pool_name | -category server_category | -node "node_list"]
   [–stoptimeout stop_timeout] [-checkinterval check_interval]

Parameters

Table G-88 srvctl modify vm Command Parameters

Parameter Description
-name unique_name

Specify the unique name of the virtual machine resource you want to modify.

-addvm "list_of_vms"

Specify a comma-delimited list of virtual machine names or virtual machine IDs, enclosed in double quotation marks (""), that you want to add to the virtual machine resource. You can add virtual machines to a virtual machine resource at any time regardless of whether the virtual machine resource instance is running. Adding virtual machines creates new cardinality IDs.

-removevms "list_of_vms"

Specify a comma-delimited list of virtual machine names or virtual machine IDs that you want to remove from the virtual machine resource. You cannot remove a virtual machine if there are existing instances of the virtual machine resource still running. An attempt to do so results in an error.

-serverpool server_pool_name | -category server_category | -node "node_list"

You can modify the server pool, server category, or list of nodes to which the virtual machine resource belongs.

A list of nodes must be enclosed in double quotation marks ("").

If you choose to specify a list of nodes, then the number of nodes must be greater than or equal to the number of virtual machine resources you specify.

–stoptimeout stop_timeout

You can modify the stop timeout, in seconds. The default is 180 if you do not assign a value to the parameter.

-checkinterval check_interval

You can modify the interval between checks, in seconds. The default is 10 if you do not assign a value to the parameter.

Example

An example of this command is:

$ srvctl modify vm -name vmres -addvm vm2 -removevm vm1 -stoptimeout 93

srvctl relocate vm

Relocates a running virtual machine resource to another node, or relocates the virtual machine resource running on the specified node to another node.
