Example Scenario III

Similar to example scenario II, if private interconnect cables are disconnected in a two-node cluster, Node 1 is fenced out of the cluster, panics, and reboots. If before the private interconnect cables are fixed and Node 1 rejoins the cluster, Node 0 panics due to hardware failure and cannot come back up, Node 1 cannot rejoin.

Suggested solution: Shut down Node 1, reconnect the cables, restart the node. You must then clear the registration of Node 0 from the coordinator disks.

To fix scenario III

  1. On Node 1, type the following command:
    # /opt/VRTSvcs/vxfen/bin/vxfenclearpre
  2. Restart the node.
  3. Run:
    # gabconfig -cx
