NOTE: In the examples that follow, user details, cluster names, hostnames, directory paths, filenames, etc. represent a fictitious sample (and are used to provide an illustrative example only). Any similarity to actual persons, or entities, living or dead, is purely coincidental and not intended in any manner.


Running bdacheckcluster is so slow it appears to be hung. Along with this one node of the cluster can not have its public hostname resolved.

1. Running bdacheckcluster produces errors when "Checking local DNS resolve of public hostnames on all cluster hosts" for one node of the cluster. In other words we see that one node of the cluster, for example, can not be resolved on any node of the cluster.

This step does not take excessive time, but errors out. The error shows that when executing "host" the client address is returned
not the private address as expected.

a) bdacheckcluster error for bdanode01 when "Checking local DNS resolve of public hostnames on all cluster hosts":

These lookups are supposed to be fast because they should not be accessing  any nameserver. However any slowdown will be amplified by cross-host checking.
