SFT III primary engine confusion
Posted on 2005-04-13
I am trying to restablish mirroring between two SFT III servers. On server is up and running fine.
I duplicated the drive from the working server and installed it in the second server. I edited the IOSTART.NCF to change the IOengine name and internal network, then booted it with the MSL disconnected so I could load install and delete the SYS volume.
I shut down both servers, booted the working server into the IOengine, then booted the second. IO engines establish aconnection OK. When I type ACTIVATE SERVER, the servers abend with the following error:
"partitition object not found in PartitionMappingTable".
messages followed indicating that the system is seeing the second server as the primary engine and implies to me that it's trying to use the non-existant SYS volume.
Where did I go off-track?
How does SFT III determine which engine is the primary engine?
