Try running "lltconfig -U" first.

Then you can run "lltconfig -c" to start LLT (or use  /lib/svc/method/llt start which loads LLT kernel module, which are already loaded and starts LLT)

i think the message indicates that on the inter-connect network, there already exist node-id '1' with cluster id 7777.

look into the /etc/llttab and /etc/llthosts on solaris11-chi-2. Also there could be other nodes connected to same interconnects (net2 and net3) having the same cluster-id.

i think there was some way to find this out using llt-command. will check and getback

Thanks and Warm Regards,

1.  modify  /etc/llttab:


set-node solaris11-chi-1
set-cluster 7777
link net2 /dev/net/net2:0 - ether - -
link net3 /dev/net/net3:1 - ether - -
set-cluster  id to a different  number like:1234
set-node solaris11-chi-1
set-cluster 1234
link net2 /dev/net/net2:0 - ether - -
link net3 /dev/net/net3:1 - ether - -
make sure also  change another node  to same cluster id.
2. start llt again:
/lib/svc/method/llt start
