Virtual Servers left in unknown state. Blade keeps restarting.


-- Cannot persist the wildcard virtual server RD configuration. -- Changing virtual server description after moving route-domain fails. -- Secondary blade in constant reboot loop or mcpd process restarting loop.


Change default route domain (RD) of partition with wildcard Virtual Servers.


1. Delete wildcard virtual servers before changing default route-domain on partition. 2. Execute the following commands, in sequence, substituting your values for the configuration-specific ones in this example: # ssh slot2 bigstart stop # modify auth partition pa-1098-blkbbsi0000csa21ad1142 default-route-domain 109 # save sys config # clsh rm -f /var/db/mcpdb.bin # ssh slot2 bigstart start Note: This recovery method might have to be executed multiple times to restore a working setup.
