I had several HA failover stacks up and running, but two of my servers went out. I had to rob a server from a good stack to get the 3rd stack back in action. I says to myself, Self? I should just be a ble to put that server in the rack, plug up the fiber and away we would go. Wrong, so I said ok, if I create the initiator groups using the WWPN's from the new serve to the filer that would work....Still a no go at this station. I went into the filer manually and entered the code
igroup create -f -t vmware esx1_hba0 [Qlogic WWPN Port 1]
igroup create -f -t vmware esx1_hba1 [Qlogic WWPN Port 2]
igroup create -f -t vmware esx2_hba0 [Qlogic WWPN Port 1]
igroup create -f -t vmware esx2_hba1 [Qlogic WWPN Port 2]
Where the Bracketed text was the wwpn numbers of the new server, rescan, nothing.
if I* di an igroup show, the initiator groups are there, they just will not talk to the esx3.5 server.
THis filer has VM's on it that I need to be running. What should my next steps be to bet this little operation back on a winning track?
