Error Code details
Severity: Error 
Component: Cluster Server 
System %s (Node '%s') is in Down State - Membership: 0x%s

This error occurs when the peer systems of the cluster stop receiving the heartbeat signal from this specific system over the cluster interconnect. In this case, Global Atomic Broadcast (GAB) marks the system as DOWN, excludes the system from cluster membership, and delivers the membership change to the fencing module.

Whenever a node goes DOWN in the cluster, VCS checks two events, HAD down and LLT disconnection.

  • If VCS detects that the High Availability Daemon (HAD) is down on the active node, VCS auto-disables all service groups on the active node.
  • If VCS detects a Low Latency Transport (LLT) disconnection within the specified time (based on the ShutdownTimeoutattribute), VCS regards that the active node is crashed and enables the auto-disabled service group and fails over the service groups and resources to the working node in the cluster.
  • If VCS does not detect LLT disconnection, VCS considers that the active node is hung.

For the first two cases above, you do not have to take any action. In the third case, the node can be hung for various reasons. Check if there are any problems with cluster interconnects, the cluster node, or HAD.
