Cluster Problem

Hello,

We have a TRU Cluster V5.1A node. It was not reachable and nothing was getting displayed on the screen. Tried to ssh but no help.
Hence rebooted the cluster node and it has come online.
In the logs we found few error events.
Please find the attachment for the relevant logs.

Logs show error event pertaining to (B9 T0 L0)
TAPE and DEC SIM.
So looks like the tape library connected to host has some problem. But not sure what DEC SIM is.

Could you please spare a thought on this?


Thanx,
admin

Re: Cluster Problem

DEC SIM is the SCSI device class.

Re: Cluster Problem

Ok...so its just a class....so is it correct when I say there is only problem with the tape drive?

Re: Cluster Problem

Hi,

I wouldn't have expected a SCSI tape error to completely lock up a node.

Did any of the other members of the cluster log any useful information ?

Take a look at the EVM log files - usually easiest through sysman.

Cheers,

Rob

Re: Cluster Problem

The other members did not recr any relevant errors. And the Tape Library is quite old. The tape backupruns for hours and during the backup , the system gets very much occupied as per the observation. So we felt that would have hanged the system.

Re: Cluster Problem

Examine the binary.errlog SCSI events using DECevent rather than uerf - DECevent gives much more information about the event(s), and it -might- shed some light on what happened.
