any one know how to configure SMH for OpenVMS in a cluster?

Hi:
I install SMH V2.0 in a OpenVMS cluster.
SMH for OpenVMS: V2.0
OpenVMS: V8.3
Cluster: 2 nodes, est101 and est102
the 2 nodes are sharing the same syscommon disk which is a partition from EVA Disk Array. The syscommon disk is in ODS2 format. I install SMH on another ODS5 disk. Now one node est101 is OK but the other node est102 fails.

"fails" is not a useful description of what
you did, or what happened when you did it.

Were both nodes up during the install ?
If not, it needs config via :
$RUN SMH$COMMON:[000000.BIN]SMH_CONFIG.EXE

fwiw

seanguo,

welcome to the OpenVMS ITRC forum.

I had to install SMH on the other node as well, although I had installed it on the shared ODS-5 system disk. Running SMH_CONFIG did not fix this problem ! According to my notes a [.DATA] directory was missing...

As of my understanding, If SMH installed in common system Disk, then only SMH will be working for all the nodes. If you are installing SMH in other disk, SMH_CONFIG may not collect your cluster information. hence [DATA] folder will not be created.
