Severity: 2-Critical


The csyncd operation fails to publish its manifest to another blade in the cluster.


-- The named and zrd processes start failing on secondary blades. -- If the /config/zebos directory is removed from the secondaries and one of the blades becomes primary tmm might fail to start. -- This might affect directories other than /config/zebos and /var/named/config/namedb.


Create some files and directories in /config/zebos or /var/named/config/namedb on the primary in multi-blade VIPRION or multi-blade vCMP guest.


The following manual operation can be performed if this occurs: # Stop all affected daemons bigstart stop csyncd bigstart stop named bigstart stop tmrouted # rsync zone and zebos files from primary to secondary rsync -arvzAXI primary:/config/zebos /config/zebos rsync -arvzAXI primary:/var/named/config/namedb /var/named/config/namedb # Wait until the files have been copied # Start all affected daemons bigstart start csyncd bigstart start named bigstart start tmrouted
