Attempting to online any On-Off resource of a particular type on a specific node; such as any configured MountV resource, may fail because of a failed agent.
V-16-1-10269 Agent failed to online resource
This error can occur if the agent for the resource is not started; or is in a faulted state. To check the state of all agents, execute one of the following commands from a Windows command prompt:
Note: The hastatus -sum command will show any failed agents and the node in the cluster that they are faulted on.
To check the state of a specific agent, execute the following command:
haagent -display agent -sys HOSTNAME
where agent can be found from the haagent -list command, and HOSTNAME is the name of the node you wish to check.
Agent and HOSTNAME are case sensitive, with HOSTNAME needing to be in capital letters.
If a resource type is faulted, the agent will need to be restarted so the resource can successfully online.
> haagent -stop agent -sys HOSTNAME
> haagent -start agent -sys HOSTNAME
If an agent fails to stop, use the -force switch to force the operation.
