Severity: 2-Critical


- clusterd restarts on secondary blade - /var/log/ltm: "Management IP (<guest_management-ip>) already in use by (vcmp guest <guest_name>)"


- Secondary slot on viprion hypervisor is in "INOPERATIVE" state


1. blade power off/on using bladectl command allows to reproduce ~80% of the time 2. not sure if this is specific to platform: - was able to reproduce easily on (B2100 - A109), - issue reproduced multiple times in cusomter environment on (B2150 - A113) - not able to reproduce with the same steps and version on 4800 (PB300) viprion


On the VMCP Host, copy the file /shared/db/cluster.conf from the primary to all secondary cluster members. For a four slot chassis, issue this command from the primary: $ for i in 1 2 3 4; scp /shared/db/cluster.conf slot$i:shared/db/cluster.conf ; done Clusterd should then recover from the restart loop on secondary blades.
