Solution



TROUBLESHOOTING

 

- Using Operating System (OS) based commands, verify that the zones are active at the MH.

 

torcomm05# zoneadm list -cv
  ID NAME             STATUS     PATH                           BRAND    IP    
   0 global           running    /                              native   shared
   6 fiusgfidb1       running    /zones/fiusgfidb1              native   shared
   7 dstsapp3         running    /zones/dstsapp3/zone_root      native   shared
  13 torhmd01         running    /zones/torhmd01/zone_root      native   shared
  15 torgfici01       running    /zones/torgfici01/zone_root    native   shared
   - torgfici02       configured /zones/torgfici02/zone_root    native   shared
   - dstsapp1         configured /zones/dstsapp1/zone_root      native   shared
   - dstsapp2         configured /zones/dstsapp2/zone_root      native   shared

(note: zone must have been "installed" to be discovered)

 

- There is a known issue related to UUIDs missing in Solaris local zones; verify that each "installed" zone has a UUID (contact Oracle to resolve missing UUIDs).

 

torcomm05# zoneadm list -cp
0:global:running:/::native:shared
6:fiusgfidb1:running:/zones/fiusgfidb1:50b3b011-7ac4-e0cf-912a-de95f1c3dec7:native:shared

WORKAROUND

 

Summary Procedure

 

- Remove the MH from the VOM doman and re-add it.

 

Detailed Proceure

 

-  The MH must be forcefully removed from the domain (this will only affect VOM reporting for this MH)

    (use one of the 2 procedures below depending on the VOM verson used)

 

   o  VOM 4.1: The following patch will need to be installed and the MH will be removed at the command line.

       Patch ID: HF040101190-07

       Go to http://sort.symantec.com and search for the patch ID (near upper right) or Browse patch table

          (Downloads / Patches) or ...

       Direct link: https://sort.symantec.com/patch/detail/6040

          (follow the installation instructions at this page to deploy this patch)

 

       Command: /opt/VRTSsfmh/bin//vomadm host-mgmt -remove -host <hostname_of_MH> --force

       Example:

[root@vom01 logs]# /opt/VRTSsfmh/bin/vomadm host-mgmt -remove -host torcomm05.tor.xxxxx.xxxx.com --force 

          Removing host torcomm05.tor.xxxx.xxxx.com... 
          Removing the CH forcefully 
          Removed host torcomm05.tor.xxxx.xxxx.com successfully 
          Refer /var/opt/VRTSsfmh/logs/vomadm.log for details 
 

 

  o  In VOM 5.0, the MH will be removed at the command line (patch not required).

       Example:

           [root@vom01 logs]# /opt/VRTSsfmh/bin/vomadm host-mgmt -remove -host torcomm05.tor.xxxxx.xxxx.com --force

          Removing host torcomm05.tor.xxxx.xxxx.com...
          Removing the CH forcefully 
          Removed host torcomm05.tor.xxxx.xxxx.com successfully
          Refer /var/opt/VRTSsfmh/logs/vomadm.log for details
