Solaris Cluster Effect of a STOP_FAILED Resource on Resource_dependencies
Last updated on DECEMBER 14, 2016

Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)
In a Sun/Solaris Cluster 3.x environment where "resource dependencies" is set to one or more resources (within same resource group and/or in other resource groups), we are concerned about the behavior (in a resource group shutdown situation) of the other resources when this resource fails to stop.
The r_properties(5) manpages currently state... "... Resource_dependencies (string_array) A list of resources in the same or in different groups upon which this resource has a strong dependency. ... However, if this resource remains online or fails to stop, a resource in the list that is in a different <<<< resource group stops anyway. <<<< ..."
So, the question is what happens to those depended upon resources within the *same* resource group?
