Solaris Cluster 3.x Disk Can not be Selected to be Quorum Device

(Doc ID 1006586.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 15, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Cluster - Version 3.0 to OSC 3.3 3/13 [Release 3.0 to 3.3]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)

Symptoms

The Solaris Cluster quorum device should be moved to a new device.
The scconf command seems to succeed, however the error:

"Reading reservation keys from quorum device /dev/did/rdsk/d<num>s2 failed"

is seen upon boot.

The pgre command shows that actual key for a node was never registered.
