Scheduling a fire drill

You can schedule the fire drill for the service group using the fdsched script. The fdsched script is designed to run only on the lowest numbered node that is currently running in the cluster. The scheduler runs the command hagrp -online firedrill_group -any at periodic intervals.

To schedule a fire drill

  1. Add the file /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/fdsched to your crontab.
  2. To make fire drills highly available, add the fdsched file to each node in the cluster.
