We can view the available node names on the Veritas Cluster Service in the command prompt of an server by excecuting the command “hasys -state”
This will list the node names as shown below
#System Attribute Value
Node1 SysState Running
Node2 SysState Running
Sometimes you may get an error message stating the server is in stale_admin_wait state please use “hasys -force”.
STALE_ADMIN_WAIT states the the system has a stale configuration and there is no other node in a state of RUNNING to retrieve a configuration. Possible reasons include:
1. The High Availability Daemon (HAD) service has been stopped on all nodes without closing the configuration (i.e. using hastop -all -force).
2. All cluster nodes have been rebooted at the same time.
3. An invalid configuration file is present on all nodes.
If the administrator is confident that a valid configuration exists on a particular node, that node can be “forced” to read its own configuration file. It is recommended that the existing configurations on all nodes be backed up by using the hagetcf -conf command. Once a backup exists, execute the following command:
hasys -force node_name
