The vcsqs command allows administrators to manage service groups and systems within a cluster. The command can also be used to display state information about all service groups, resources, and systems, or about a specific group, resource, or system.


-start Starts the VCS QS server and related processes on the local system.
-stop [-all | -shutdown | -evacuate]
  Stops the VCS QS server and related processes on the local system without offlining service groups active on that system. The -shutdown option offlines all service groups online on the system before VCS QS is stopped. The -all option can be used to stop or shutdown VCS QS on both systems. The -evacuate option fails over the service groups active on the local system to the other system before stopping VCS QS.
-grp [group]
  Displays the group state table or single group state.
-res [resource]
  Displays the resource state table or single resource state.
-config [resource]
  Displays all resource configuration attribute values or the configuration attribute values of a single resource.
-sys Displays the system state table, which includes the Cluster Link Status.
-online group -sys system
  Online a group on a specified system.
-offline group [-sys system]

-switch group [-sys system]
  Switches an online or partial group to the other VCS QS system if the system is OFFLINE.
