Re: paircreate error

1. Have you done the configuration correctly in the horcm configuration file?

2. Also look at the log file /HORCM/log/cmdlog/horcc_morula.log for the possible reasons.

3. Check the correctness of the configuration using the command: # pairdisplay -c -g group_name

4. Run pairdisplay to display the status of the volumes in the group designated with the -g option.

# pairdisplay -g group_name -fcx

Note: The status of S-Vol and P-Vol at this stage will be SMPL.

5. After this only try for the paircreate command.

Re: paircreate error

Hi SKS
I think I have done the horcm cofirguration file correctly. Maybe I have done it wrongly , do you have sample file you could maybe send to me to compare with what I have.

The error from the log is COMMAND ERROR : EUserId for HOMRCF : root (0) Tue Aug 3 21:14:01 2004
CMDLINE : pairvolchk -g BC1_PRBIDDAT
21:14:01-ea45e-29089- ERROR:cm_sndrcv[rc < 0 from HORCM]
21:14:02-0502d-29089- [pairvolchk][exit(236)]
[EX_ENQVOL] Unmatched volume status within the group
[Cause ]:The volume attribute or the fence level within a group isn't identical.
[Action]:Please confirm volume status by using the pairdisplay command,it make sure all volumes in the group have the same fence level and volume attributes.

The pair display command run ouput comes as SMPL. Then we tried to run paircreate which comes with that error the initial error I posted.

SO we are just stuck. Please help

Re: paircreate error

Hello

If you are using array such as XP128. Can you post the following info in a document:

#xpinfo â i

Mention which LDEVs will be S-Vol and which will be P-Vols.

2. List your horcm file.

3. List the output of following command:

# raidscan -p cluster_port -fx

For example cluster_port=CL1-A
