Cluster startup question

Hello.

For an example if we have 2 nodes cluster and if we shutdown both nodes and if I bring the node1 it shouldn't come up until node2 comes right?

Or I need to do gabconfig  -c0 to bring up right? Am I wrong?

You query is concerning GAB

You query is concerning GAB seeding; please refer to SFHA Solutions 6.0.1: About GAB seeding and its role in VCS and other SFHA products.

In the event that you need to force VCS to start without some of the nodes defined to be part of the cluster, your need to perform a Manual GAB membership seeding on the node that is working. 

Refer to the gabconfig man page for more details, but I am pretty sure that "gabconfig  -c0" is not going to work as it does not conform the the gabconfig syntax.  I thing you generally want to do "gabconfig -cx", after first making sure that there are no pre-existing network partitions.

No if both nodes do not come

No if both nodes do not come up, then you need to manually seed cluster using "gabconfig -x"

You are correct in that if

You are correct in that if both nodes do not come up, then GAB will not seed preventing the cluster from starting (had daemon will still start, but the engine log will say VCS is waiting for GAB membership.

You used to be able to use "gabconfig -cx" to manually seed, but now (since about 6.0 I think) you have to use "gabconfig -x" (which works on previous versions of VCS too), otherwise you get "Gab already configured message".

Thank you Guys. So, VCS can

Thank you Guys. So, VCS can still come in one node without any manual seeding right?

That's is exactly i have

That's is exactly i have expected, but  both node  went down, but when I startup one node VCS is starting on that node without any issue.

Please ignroe I just checked

Please ignroe I just checked gabtab and someone to seed only one node.  Thank you for the answer/
