Troubleshooting the lost diskset on Sun Cluster

In middle of night I check my cluster labs, and it show my apache resource group is not running… I re-check it, and I found that the cluster node didn’t mount the webds /global/web. My webds diskset is gone, I don’t know the root cause of this problem… 😀 maybe I’m doing another lab in the same node, and did not consciously change its configuration.

if i check the metaset of the webds status, it show no node that own this diskset

bash-3.00# metaset -s webds

Set name = webds, Set number = 2

Host                Owner

Mediator Host(s)    Aliases

Driv Dbase

d6   Yes

and if I running the metastat status for webds it coming up with error :

bash-3.00# metastat -s webds
metastat: clnode-01: webds: must be owner of the set for this command

The resolution is simple, below my troubleshooting :
1. boot your node-1 & node-2 in non cluster mode
2. comment out the share device at /etc/vfstab
3. boot your node-1 & node-2 in cluster mode
4. on node-2 :
force purge the lost disket :

metaset -s <setname> -P -f

5. on node-1 :
force purge the lost disket :

metaset -s <setname> -P -f

re-recreate your metaset disket :

metaset -s <setname> -a -h NodeA NodeB
metaset -s <setname> -a <diskpath0> <diskpath1> ... <diskpathN>
metaset -s <setname> -a -m NodeA NodeB

(should show new set and ownership)

Note : because my webds disket is set of the svm disk, I re-create the soft partition on it..

bash-3.00# metainit -s webds d1 1 1 /dev/did/rdsk/d6s0
webds/d1: Concat/Stripe is setup
bash-3.00# metainit -s webds d200 -p d1 3g
d200: Soft Partition is setup
bash-3.00# metastat -s webds
webds/d200: Soft Partition

    State: Okay

testing mount, and ls direcory :

bash-3.00# mount /dev/md/webds/dsk/d200 /global/web
bash-3.00# ls -l /global/web
total 24
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     root         512 May 31 21:55 bin

in theory, And you should be happy, your cluster resource group is running again.

bash-3.00# clrg status

reboot your node if needed. 🙂
