Cluster cannot be added to this instance - Performance Manager

Hi,

 

I installed an instance of Performance Manager and added two clusters to it. For whatever reason I had to ditch the Performance Manager VM and re-deploy it. Now that I have a new instance, I cannot add the clusters to it. Yes, I should have removed them before I destroyed the first instance, but I didn't.

 

How can I tell the clusters that they are no longer being managed by the old instance of Performance Manager? The documentation says to ignore the warning, but alas that is not possible, it will not let you add them.

 

Error:

 

Cluster <xxx> is currently managed by the following instance of OnCommand Performance Manager:

 

URL:                       https://<xxx.xxx.com>:443

System ID:          <uuid-here>

 

Managing a cluster with multiple instances of the same application will impact the performance of the cluster.

 

You must remove cluster <xxx> from the instance of OnCommand Performance Manager above before adding it to this instance of OnCommand Performance Manager.

 

Thanks

Same problem here!

Documentation says we can safely ignore this error message. This is kind of hard though when you don´t have any more clusters to add and can´t get through the initial setup guide. Stuck!

I found the solution to this problem:

 

Go into "diag" mode on your cluster:  set -privilege diag

Run:  application-record show

 

This should show you the OPM that the cluster is associated with.

 

Run:  application-record delete -name <Record Name>

 

You should now be able to add this cluster to your new OPM.

Awesome, thankyou! I thought I looked at every diagnostic command available.

Huge!   This was bugging me for two weeks -- thanks for documenting the fix.

As was mentioned, thanks. This worked perfectly. There's no way I would have found this as quickly as I did turning to Google first and arriving here.

Thanks for the Solution!

Re: Cluster cannot be added to this instance - Performance Manager

Thanks! This solved it for me too.

 

NOTE: The field record name that you are providing is the entire string before the {} brackets, i.e.:

 

app-OnCommand Performance Manager-1eb649cc-9635-4441-14a6-fd4b25c274d6

 

So you'll need to quote that name in your command, like so:

 

my_cluster::*> application-record delete "app-OnCommand Performance Manager-1eb649cc-9635-4441-14a6-fd4b25c274d6"

 

my_cluster::*> application-record show
This table is currently empty.

 

Thanks again for the answer!
