Thanks again Mike and Gaurav .

 

I am facing one more issue when i am trying to switch the resource group from node1 to node2 and getting attached error for the nfs mount point.Also attaching update main.cf.

 

So can you please suggest the solution to this problem as well.

 

Below is the nfs export and fstab file entry on node1 ,node2.

[root@node1 ~]# cat /etc/exports
/nfsshr01 *(rw,sync,no_root_squash)
[root@node1 ~]#

 

[root@node1 ~]# cat /etc/fstab
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
tmpfs                   /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
devpts                  /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
sysfs                   /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
proc                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

# NOTE: When adding or modifying VxFS or VxVM entries, add '_netdev'
# to the mount options to ensure the filesystems are mounted after VxVM and
# VxFS have started.
192.168.56.121:/nfsshr01 /nfslock       nfs      defaults        0 0
[root@node1 ~]#

 

[root@node2 ~]# cat /etc/fstab
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
tmpfs                   /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
devpts                  /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
sysfs                   /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
proc                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

# NOTE: When adding or modifying VxFS or VxVM entries, add '_netdev'

192.168.56.121:/nfsshr01 /nfslock       nfs      defaults        0 0
[root@node2 ~]#

 

When trying to do manually getting below error for mount point under vcs.

[root@node2 ~]# mount -t vxfs /dev/vx/dsk/nfsvdg01/nfsvol01  /nfsshr01
UX:vxfs mount.vxfs: ERROR: V-3-22168: Cannot open portal device: No such file or directory

Have you run "vxlicrep" (or "vxkeyless display" if you are using keyless licences), to verify your license.

License looks okay ..Could you check on the vxfs startup scripts for the runlevel, as advised here:

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH137343

These symptoms may happen if the vxportal kernel module fails to load. Is this a new installation/upgrade ? Were there any issues at the time ?

 

thanks

Hi Tony,

 

This is the new installation i have done on two virtual machines on virtualbox.

Every thing working fine on node1 .

Please advice.

Thanks

Can you confirm if vx modules are loaded after system startup?

# lsmod | grep -i vx
