havmconfigsync - Synchronize the virtual machine configuration from the node on which its online to other nodes in the cluster.
Use the havmconfigsync utility to synchronize the configuration of a virtual machine from the node on which it is online to all other nodes in the cluster. You can run the havmconfigsync utility from any of the nodes in the cluster. The havmconfigsync utility takes the name of the virtual machine name as parameter. The utility detects the node on which the virtual machine is online and saves the configuration of that virtual machine to a shared storage. The location of the shared storage is determined by the file specified in the SyncDir/GuestConfigFilePath attribute.
The utility backs up the configuration file before updating it with the new configuration. On the other nodes in the cluster, during failover or switch, the online operation redefines the KVMGuest configuration using the saved configuration.
Note: The path of the file specified must be on a shared storage that is either parallel or failover type.
Pass virtual machine name for which the configuration is to be synchronized as argument to havmconfigsync utility.
The following example illustrates synchronizing configuration of virtual machine kvmguest_01
