Last updated on DECEMBER 06, 2021

Applies to:

Solaris Cluster - Version 3.0 to 4.3 [Release 3.0 to 4.3]
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)


Solaris Cluster has a minimum of two private transports also known as private interconnect or private network for high availability.

This article applies to situations when you have one path in 'failed' or 'faulted' state.

If all private transport in failed/faulted state it is more likely that the node they are connected to is down or not part of the cluster.


In Sun Cluster 3.0 or 3.1 you would see the failure/errors in

This procedure uses nxge interfaces but it is not specific to nxge and applies to other types of transports. The article shows Solaris Cluster 3.2 and above command set. For older revisions see man pages for scconf and scsetup.

This resolution path can also be used to analyze cluster interconnect issue, when the speed is not correct, e.g. the interconnect is running on 100Mbit instead of 1000Mbit.
