Starting the VCS engine (HAD) and related processes

The command to start VCS is invoked from the following file:


When VCS is started, it checks the state of its local configuration file and registers with GAB for cluster membership. If the local configuration is valid, and if no other system is running VCS, it builds its state from the local configuration file and enters the RUNNING state.

If the configuration on all nodes is invalid, the VCS engine waits for manual intervention, or for VCS to be started on a system that has a valid configuration.

See System states.
