QW ist not starting

Hi,

I've managed to install 3PAR simulator with remote copy. Now I want to add quorum witness and have downloaded rcopy_qw_2.1.000.ESX_QR482-11156.iso, deployed the VM and configured both nodes. However, showrcopy -qw informs about its status Not-started. A reboot does also not solve this issue, status starts with Initializing and end up in Not-started.

Any ideas what's wrong here?

TIA
Roland

Hello @R-Sommer 

Please follow the below to start the Quorum Witness server:
showrcopy -qw targets To view the status of quorum witness
setrcopytarget witness check <QW IP> Verify connectivity to the quorum witness
setrcopytarget witness stop <target_name> To stop the quorum
setrcopytarget witness start <target_name> To start the quorum
showrcopy -qw targets To view the status of quorum witness


If the above workaround failed, please remove and add the QW server:
showrcopy -qw targets To view the status of quorum witness
setrcopytarget witness stop <target_name> To stop the quorum
setrcopytarget witness remove <target_name> To remove a quorum witness
setrcopytarget witness check <IP of Quorum Witness> Verify connectivity to the quorum witness
setrcopytarget witness create <IP of Quorum Witness> <target_name> To add a quorum witness to a target
showrcopy -qw targets To view the status of a created quorum witness

 

Hope this is helpful. Let me know if you need further assistance.
