Now this one, sivaji,
1) do you really mean HACMP 4.5? Not 5.4?
2) your problem seems to be related to start/stop scripts. Are they correctly defined within the application server definition? Do they exist on both nodes, in exactly the same path with exactly the same content?
Please post details, e.g. the output of '/usr/es/sbin/cluster/utilities/clshowres' and '/usr/es/sbin/cluster/utilities/cldisp'

OK sivaji,
what happens during resource group migration?

Although this is a rather complicated process, the basics are simple.
-> Note that processing not necessarily takes place exactly in the sequence I write it down below!

The cluster manager on the releasing node -
- brings the resource group's application down by running the configured stop script(s).
- removes the service IP address(es) from the affected interface(s)
- unmounts the configured file systems
- varies the affected volume group(s) offline (and back on in passive-only mode if enhanced-concurrent)

- The cluster manager on the receiving node (which has already been notified about what's going on) -
- varies the affected volume group(s) offline (if enhanced-concurrent) and varies it back on in active mode
- mounts the resource group's filesystems
- activates the service IP address(es) on the designated interface(s)
- brings the resource group's application up by running the configured start script(s).

All the above is accompanied by lots of messages sent between the two nodes.
There are much more things that happen "behind the scene",
let alone things like application dependencies, user-defined events and so on.

HTH for a first insight, to learn more please look here:


What about your original problem (application not starting)?
Could you solve it?

Hi sivaji,
thanks for the points, but why grade B?
If what I said in my comments was wrong/not enough you could have notified me, so I would have been able to correct/improve it.
