Symptoms

In a Solaris Cluster environment, when Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) software is used, one node may not be able to import a disk set. This will prevent the cluster from failing over properly.

By way of example consider a two node cluster with nodes: node1 and node2 and the disk set ora-set.

On node1:

Until node2 cannot take ownership of the set, cluster failover will not work properly.
