How to Update Quorum Server Software
If the cluster uses a quorum server, update the Quorum Server
software on the quorum server before you update
If more than one cluster uses the quorum server, perform on each
cluster the steps to remove the quorum server and later the steps to
add back the quorum server.
Perform all steps as the root role on the
cluster and on the quorum server.
If the cluster has two nodes and the quorum server is the cluster's only quorum device,
temporarily add a second quorum device.
See Adding a Quorum Device in Administering an Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 Configuration.
If you add another quorum server as a temporary quorum device, the quorum server can run the
same software version as the quorum server that you are updating, or it can run the 4.4
version of Quorum Server software.
Unconfigure the quorum server from each cluster that uses the quorum server.
phys-schost# clquorum remove quorum-server
From the quorum server to update, verify that the quorum server no longer serves any
quorumserver# clquorumserver show +
If the output shows any cluster is still served by the quorum server, unconfigure the quorum
server from that cluster. Then repeat this step to confirm that the quorum server is no longer
configured with any cluster.
From the quorum server to update, halt all quorum server instances.
quorumserver# clquorumserver stop +
Uninstall the Quorum Server software from the quorum server to update.
quorumserver# pkg uninstall ha-cluster/*
Clean up or remove the quorum server directories.
By default, this directory is /var/scqsd.
Install the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 Quorum Server software, reconfigure the quorum server, and start
the quorum server daemon.
Follow the steps in How to Install and Configure Oracle Solaris Cluster Quorum Server Software in Installing and Configuring an Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 Environment for
installing the Quorum Server software.
From a cluster node, configure the updated quorum server as a quorum device.
Follow the steps in How to Configure Quorum Devices in Installing and Configuring an Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 Environment.
If you configured a temporary quorum device, unconfigure it.
phys-schost# clquorum remove temp-quorum
