ClusterXL Formation

Hi Guys,

I would like to seek for your expertise to check if my cluster have formed. I am a bit confused and no idea why in my Smart-1, cluster is showing an error but based on CLI, I can say that my 2x CP gateways is acting master and non-master meaning cluster is formed right? But some information is showing that it is down or lost of sync is incrementing etc.

I just cable my 2x gateways back to back using the Sync interface.

What is the useful information that I can use to determine if the ClusterXL is formed with no issues?

Thanks

Try Debugging Full Synchronization in ClusterXL 

cphaprob list may be what you're looking for.

Re: ClusterXL Formation

Please provide output of commands cphaprob -a if and cphaprob -l list for both cluster members.  You have a pnote failure in the cluster (probably a network interface mismatch or disconnect of some kind).
