SFHA 6: Diskgroup fails after reboot

Created: 18 Feb 2013 | 1 comment


We upgraded our Clusters from SFHA 5.1 SP2 to SFHA 6.0.1 CP3 a few days ago. Now, after this Upgrade we have an issue when we try to start the VMDg-Ressource after a Server-reboot:
When we stop all the ressources on Node1 and reboot this Node, we aren't able to start the VMDg-Ressource again on that node after the boot until we rescan/refresh the Disks in the Veritas Enterprise Administrator. I also activated the SCSI-3 Support but with no effect.
There's only this Event in the Windows Eventlog: Failed to deport cluster dynamic disk group xxxx_DG.

And this event is stored in the VEA-Log:

   Montag, 18. Februar 2013 15:38 Uhr MEZ
   dynamic disk and volume class
Brief Description:
   Failed to deport cluster dynamic disk group xxxx_DG.
   Failed to deport cluster dynamic disk group.
Recommended Action:
   Please try again later.
Other Properties:

The SFHA Nodes are W2008R2 Server VM's on VMware vSphere 5.0 Hosts. Drivers are from the latest VMware Tools.

Does anybody know this issue or has a solution?

Hi Schilli,

Can you check the Engine_A.txt log and the VMDg_A.txt log that are in the %vcs_home%\log folder around the time the server was rebooted?  These logs will have what that cluster is doing or having problems with during that time.

If possible can you share the messages in these logs from around that timeframe?

Thank you,
