Solaris Cluster Unable to Start a Resource Group due to Device Group in Maintenance State
Last updated on JUNE 16, 2018
Applies to:Solaris Cluster - Version 4.3 and later
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (32-bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86 (32-bit)
A Solaris Cluster resource group fails to start.
Example for Solaris Cluster 3.2, 4.2 and higher:
clresourcegroup: (C748634) Resource group nfs-rg failed to start on chosen node and might fail over to other node(s)
You can also use the 'clrg' shorthand command for the 'clresourcegroup' command.
Example for Sun Cluster 3.0 and 3.1:
scswitch: Resource group nfs-rg failed to start on chosen node and may fail over to other node(s)
And the system log file, /var/adm/messages, reports that the SUNW.HAStoragePlus resource in this resource group has a global device service, 'nfs-dg' in this case, that is in the maintenance state.
For Sun Cluster 3.0 and earlier, the logged message will almost be the same, as shown in the example below.
