Product Line: VERDE
VERDE version: 5.5 and above
The following are commands that are associated with the control or information of the Cluster Master (CM)
How to verify which VERDE server is the Cluster Master?
From any VERDE server, type "verde-util -am-i-it" it will display which server is the Cluster Master.
(starting from VERDE 6.6, the new syntax is LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/verde/etc/libs /usr/lib/verde/bin/verde-util --am-i-it )
When a count continues to display in the Management Console's RESERVE column, a forced reset must be done by demoting the CM and forcing a CM fail-over. This will force a clear of the counts in the RESERVE column:
The command to demote the Cluster Master:
Run the command /usr/ilb/verde/bin/verde-util --demote
NOTE: This is done assuming the other node is setup as CM + VDI.
The command to promote a VERDE VDI server to a Cluster Master:
Run the command /usr/lib/verde/bin/verde-util --promote
/usr/ilb/verde/bin/verde-util --force --promote (To force the server to a Cluster Master)
The command to do see if health check is implemented:
Run the command /usr/ilb/verde/bin/verde-util --hc
returns 0 if health check successful (i.e. $MC_USER/.verde/dbaddress is fresh)
returns > 0 otherwise
If there are multiple Cluster Masters and to change one CM that is not active to the active CM, do the following:
In a cluster with 2 CM nodes, say CM1 and CM2. CM1 is active. By demoting CM1, now both CM1 and CM2 race to become the active CM and there's a 50% chance CM1 will become active again. the right way to promote CM2 to active is to perform a "verde-util --force-promote" on CM2.
To check if by chance some other environment's Cluster Master has control and causing your CM not to come up perform the following:
