If running vastool status you receive an error of no srvinfo, then first check DNS entries in resolv.conf to assure the servers are correct and that also resolve hosts   root@server1:/root# /opt/quest/bin/vastool status Host: <server1, SunOS 5.10 sparc> Date: <Tuesday, 22 November 2016 15:58:18 CET> QAS: <4.x.x.x> Domain: <> INFO: 232 No srvinfo Read more...

If trying to start a resource you receive an error about STOP_FAILED state,

root@server1:/root# clrs enable lsnr-res-chzpoip1
clrs: (C928797) Skipping resource lsnr-res-database1 because its resource group SG_oracle_GROUP1 is in ERROR_STOP_FAILED state.

We have to clear the resource state and offline the Service Group.

# clresource clear -f STOP_FAILED lsnr-res-database1

First important information is: We should never kill the zsched process!!. we have to check on the zone related zombi processes that are blocking our attempt to stop the zone (-z) root@solaris1:/root # ps -fz solariszone UID PID PPID C Read more...
