VCS cluseter gabconfig question

What is the difference between the following commands?

gabconfig  -c -x
gabconfig   -c  -2
1 Solution
-c = configure the driver
-x = seed the port

Your second command should give a syntax error - I think what you want is actually:

  gabconfig -c -n2

This tells the cluster how many nodes should be configured, in this instance, two.
The first options will work as a manual way to start vcs no matter how many nodes are online,  remember that vcs won't start until all nodes defined on /etc/gabtab are alive

cat /etc/gabtab ----> you shall see something like this:
/sbin/gabconfig -c –nN
Where "N" is the number of cluster nodes.

As xterm said the syntax on the second command is wrong

The second is defining the  number of nodes that belong to the cluster
