Solaris Cluster Determine if NFS client Service is Causing Solaris Cluster SMF service Not Start During Boot

(Doc ID 1386834.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 13, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Cluster - Version 3.2U1 4/08 and later
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)

Goal

Oracle Solaris Cluster SMF services would not start at boot because nfs client service would not complete.

For Example:

root@node2 # svcs -xv
svc:/network/nfs/client:default (NFS client)
State: offline since Sun Dec 18 23:32:38 2011
Reason: Start method is running.
See: http://sun.com/msg/SMF-8000-C4
See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 1M mount_nfs
See: /var/svc/log/network-nfs-client:default.log
Impact: 34 dependent services are not running:
svc:/milestone/multi-user:default
svc:/system/webconsole:console
svc:/system/boot-config:default
svc:/system/cluster/cl-svc-enable:default
svc:/system/cluster/ql_upgrade:default
svc:/system/cluster/mountgfs:default
svc:/system/cluster/clusterdata:default
svc:/system/cluster/ql_rgm:default
svc:/system/zones:default
svc:/system/cluster/pnm:default
svc:/system/cluster/rgm:default
svc:/application/management/common-agent-container-1:default
svc:/system/cluster/cl-svc-cluster-milestone:default
...

The SMF dependency prevented the proceeding Oracle Solaris Cluster's SMF service to start.
