VIP status=unknown issue
Date: Sat, 13 Feb 2010 19:50:25 +0530
Oracle rdbms/clusterware: 10.2.0.4
A network outage on the public interface led to the VIP status becoming
'unknown' in one cluster of 2 LPARs.
What exactly does the STATUS=UNKNOWN signify in the crs_stat output ? Why doesn't the status go OFFLINE instead ?
The 'unknown' status doesn't kead to the vip failing over with a simple
'srvctl start'. Instead we need to crs_stop the 'unknown' resource and then
What could be causing the status to go 'unknown' instead of 'offline' ?
I've hunted around, but there are plenty of docs detailing what needs to be done to make it online, but I havn't been able to locate anything on the reasons.
Any pointers / suggestions ?
