Solaris Cluster Simultaneous Shutdown of Multiple Nodes can Panic All Nodes when Quorum Server is Used
Last updated on MARCH 14, 2017
Applies to:Solaris Cluster - Version 3.2 to 4.3 [Release 3.2 to 4.3]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)
3 nodes from a 5 node Solaris Cluster had been shut down in preparation of a planned power-outage for these nodes.
A "init 0" was issued simultaneously on node1, node2, node3.
The node4 and node5 were expected to stay up.
Result from this shutdown action:
- only on node3 shut down proceeded cleanly, as expected
- all other nodes panicked with: "Cluster lost operational quorum; aborting"
This cluster uses a quorum server as quorum device.
