Updating the configuration and confirm startup (phased or full)

Perform the following steps on each upgraded node.

 To update the configuration and confirm startup

  1. Remove the /etc/VRTSvcs/conf/config/.stale file, if it exists.

    # rm -f /etc/VRTSvcs/conf/config/.stale

  2. Reboot the upgraded nodes.

    # reboot

  3. After the nodes reboot, verify that LLT is running:

    # lltconfig

    LLT is running

  4. Verify GAB is configured:

    # gabconfig -l | /usr/bin/grep 'Driver.state' | \

    /usr/bin/grep Configured

    Driver state : Configured

  5. Verify VxVM daemon is started and enabled:

    # /opt/VRTS/bin/vxdctl mode

    mode: enabled

  6. Confirm all upgraded nodes are in a running state.

    # /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/hasys -state | /usr/bin/grep RUNNING | \

    /usr/bin/wc -1


  7. After the configuration is complete, the CVM and SFCFS groups may come up frozen. To find out the frozen CVM and SFCFS groups, enter

    # /opt/VRTS/bin/hastatus -sum

    If the groups are frozen, unfreeze CVM and SFCFS groups using the following commands for each group:

    1. Make configuration read/write:

# /opt/VRTS/bin/haconf -makerw

    1. Unfreeze the group:

      # /opt/VRTS/bin/hagrp -unfreeze group -persistent

    2. Save the configuration:

# /opt/VRTS/bin/haconf -dump -makero

  1. If the CVM and SFCFS groups are offline, bring them online on all systems:

    # /opt/VRTS/bin/hagrp -online group -sys system01

    # /opt/VRTS/bin/hagrp -online group -sys system02

      Note   If the SFCFS service groups do not come online then your file system could be dirty. Proceed to Making the file systems clean.

  2. If performing a phased upgrade, proceed to Upgrading remaining nodes (phased only).

    If performing a full upgrade, proceed to step 7.
