àCurrently working on replicate the same settings over to the configuration on the inactive node “usnjnbrpt01”

    After that I will unfreeze the cluster.



Phase 3


Appliance Hardware Data collection Error ---fixed


After reviewing logs from master server and Opscenter, data collection on appliance hardware is failing because an invalid appliance hostname “nb-appliance” was added in the appliance media server list


$ nbemmcmd -listhosts         

NBEMMCMD, Version:7.1

The following hosts were found:


media              nb-appliance



$ vmoprcmd -devmon hs   | grep nb-appliance                                                                                    


                           HOST STATUS

Host Name                                  Version   Host Status

=========================================  =======   ===========

nb-appliance                               710700    DEACTIVATED




We try deactivating but still opscenter trying to get hardware information from master server for the appliance media server “nb-appliance”


After confirming from Mila/Cleveland

I deleted the media sever hostname “nb-appliance” with command


nbemmcmd –deletehost –machinename nb-appliance –machinetype media



After deleting, Data collection on appliance hardware is success.
