VCS serivices do not start automatically after reboot on Linux

Hi,

I have Veritas Cluster for Oracle with GCO option consisting of two nodes. If I restart one machine, the cluster services do not start automatically and I have to start it manually using "hastart" command in order to join the cluster again.

How can I configure the services to start automatically at start up?

The server OS is Linux RHEL 4 x64. The Veritas version is 5 MP2.

Hi Abdulla, Is it one node in

Hi Abdulla,

Is it one node in each location? if Yes, then you should have ONENODE=yes inside the file /etc/sysconfig/vcs. Sample content of this file is given below

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

It should be "no" if you have more that one locally clustered nodes.


If you have more that one node in the local cluster, then check whether you have /etc/rc3.d/S99vcs on your machine or not, if not. then it could be a problem with your installation.
