The "VERITAS VCSComm Startup" service terminated with the following error: Incorrect Function.

Solution



This error happens when the Ethernet adapter name used by a heartbeat link has changed. This is caused by replacing faulted heartbeat network adapters with other make and model network adapters. Other causes can include updating firmware on the network adapter or changing drivers used by the network adapter.

To correct this error, preform the following steps on the node or nodes that are having the problem:

1. Edit the %VCS_ROOT%\comms\llt\llttab.txt file, and change the necessary adapter name to the new adapter name.
For example, an llttab.txt file may look like this:
# This is program generated file, please do not edit.
set-node VCS01
set-cluster 2
link El90x1 El90x1 - ether - -
link El90x2 El90x2 - ether - -
start

Change the link entry before the start call in the llttab.txt file that is causing the problem.
For example, the modified llttab.txt file may look like this:
# This is program generated file, please do not edit.
set-node VCS01
set-cluster 2
link El90x1 El90x1 - ether - -
link E100B1 E100B1 - ether - -
start

2. Reboot this node.

The cluster node should boot as normal, without the error being reported in the event log.
