Solaris Cluster How to Trigger a Cluster Reconfiguration Using cmm_ctl Command (Doc ID 1536372.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 05, 2021

Applies to:

Solaris Cluster - Version 3.0 to 4.4 [Release 3.0 to 4.4]
Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition - Version 3.1 to 4.4 [Release 3.1 to 4.4]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (32-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)


A Solaris cluster reconfiguration can be triggered by a variety of events such as a change in the membership of cluster
(one node that leaves/joines the cluster is a good example of this type) or also by a change in the quorum device configuration (such as Adding/Changing/Removing QD)
All those events mentioned above imply either a change in the configuration or the execution of operations that might be unaffordable at a given time
(such as bringing one node down).
Nevertheless there might be the need to force a Solaris Cluster reconfiguration for testing purposes.
For instance one might want to test the ability to send snmp trap of Solaris Cluster after having configured it.
Forcing a cluster reconfiguration is a good method to generate an event that triggers the sending of a snmp trap by Solaris Cluster.
Such a cluster reconfiguration does not interfere with normal Solaris Cluster activities , it is harmless and doesn't need any change in cluster
