Last updated on MAY 09, 2024

Applies to:

Solaris Cluster - Version 3.0 to 3.3 U2 [Release 3.0 to 3.3]
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)


 After a reboot a Sun Cluster 3.x node will not rejoin the cluster as it will not boot further than single user mode.

On the console the following errors are evident:

Upon further investigation it is observed that the node is stuck in the S75MOUNTGFSYS startup script (for Solaris 8 and 9 systems)

On Solaris 10 systems, svc:/system/cluster/globaldevices:default smf service is not online and the node is stuck in /usr/cluster/lib/svc/method/globaldevices script.
For Solaris 10 also check:
