Format Utility Running Slowly on Veritas Cluster Nodes

(Doc ID 1601460.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 23, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version 10 1/13 U11 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Two hosts running Veritas Cluster software in an active / passive configuration ( one host has all the
disk groups imported using VxVM while the other host acts as a standby node )

On the active host, the format command completes within seconds:

Setting the variable # NOINUSE_CHECK=1
makes no difference.

The same time difference is observed if the passive node is booted from an external media
like a Solaris DVD or a jumpstart server.
