Solaris Cluster Effect of a STOP_FAILED Resource on Resource_dependencies (Doc ID 1017543.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 14, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Cluster - Version 3.0 to OSC 4.3 [Release 3.0 to 4.3]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)

Goal

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?
