Unable to recover the local database of Data Replication Module

Peetrk

Installed 2 node cluster in simulator 9.8.

 

Systems went down NOT gracefully and now after startup both system report message:

Please advice how to recover and how to gracefull shutdown simulator nide 1 and node 2.

Did all adviced, simulators fell in stalling state over and over and space and recover database events.

 

Installed simulators 9.8 on VMWorkstation and ESX1 7.0, both same issues.

 

After installing simulators 9.7 all OK ....

Thank you for your response

The shutdown situation ....

I've setup simulator cluster in my personal lab, which I want to shutdown EOB.

Shutting down the simulator nodes/cluster damages the cluster database and systems disks, so anytime I want to work with the simulator I have to rebuild the nodes and cluster from scratch, taking a lot of time.

 

Is there another way?

Hello,


Sorry missed that you working with a simulator.

For the shutdown, you will have to shutdown the simulator properly to avoid data loss since the Non-volatible RAM is simulated and is not persistent. To do so you can do either:

1. You can issue a shutdown guest from VMware.

2. You can issue the halt command from the cli, wait till it is complete then turn it off manually.

 

As for the space issue, you will need to set more space for the root vol or check whats eating space. Per example check if there is any coredump saved for that node and removed them or delete any snapshot for the root vol:

 

cluster::> system node coredump show

cluster::> system node coredump delete-all

 

To check for snapshot and delete them on vol0

 

cluster::>system node run -node <node name> -command "snap list vol0"

cluster::>system node run -node <node name> -command "snap delete -a vol0"

 

Thanks

Thank you, this helped to get the node available for login again, the cluster however still does not respond.

No coredumps, but snapshots where there and all deleted.

 

After reboot I can login to node managent IP, but what is holding cluster managent service is:

Hello,

 

If sim 9.8 you can run those commands from each node member:

 

::> set -priv diag

::*> system configuration recovery node mroot-state clear -recovery-state rdb

::*> reboot

 

Hope this helps.

The recovery was succesfull.

When log into node:

It looks like I'm closing in to the final healthy setup of the cluster.

Hello,

 

Seems that something is eating space on the root vol or your root vol is too small.

Common practice is to add another idisk to the aggr and grow the root volume, and turn off snapshots.

 

cluster> node run local

node> snap delete -a vol0

node> vol options vol0 nosnap on

node> ctrl+D

cluster> reboot

 

reboot the simulator and that should do the trick.

 

Thanks

Hello, 

 

Most likely something is filling up the root vol so you will either have to clear those or grow the volume. You can review the kb below to help you in checking what is filling the root vol.

 

https://kb.netapp.com/Advice_and_Troubleshooting/Data_Storage_Software/ONTAP_OS/How_to_find_what_is_filling_a_node's_root_volume

 

As for doing a gracefull shutdown, you can perform a takeover and giveback one at a time.

 

Thanks
