Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) startup depends on the kernel-space modules and other user-space modules starting in a specific order. You can start VCS using the installvcs –start command, or by manually starting VCS either on a single-node cluster or on each node of a cluster. The command to start VCS is typically initiated at system startup. When you start VCS, it checks the state of its local configuration file and registers with GAB for cluster membership. If the local configuration is valid, and if no other system is running VCS, it builds its state from the local configuration file and enters the RUNNING state.
To start VCS using the installvcs -start command, perform the following steps on any node in the cluster:

To start VCS manually on each node of a cluster:
