APG Node Change

1. Take Alan health check by alan script


2. Channel swap value by SCSIDISK /CS
Note: Value should be 0 for Node A and 1 for Node B
3. Firmware version and SCSI initiator id by
megarc -ctlrinfo –a0
Note: Both nodes should have same firmware version
Initiator id =7 for Node A and 6 for Node B
C:\>megarc -ctlrinfo -a0

4. AM Version by fcc_amversion own & fcc_amversion other
Note: Both nodes should have same version
5. Time zone by w32tm /tz
Note: Both nodes should have same time zone
6. Check the ipconfig
7. Check the raid state of the drives
megarc -dispcfg –a0
8. Check the APG backup
9. Connect your machine to the Active APG node and copy the backup of the
faulty node in your machine.
Go to Run> type \\192.168.200.1\m$\images\node (a/b)
By this backup you can get the burrestore.exe file

10. Connect the monitor ,keyboard and mouse to the APG node.
11. Stop ACS_PRC_EventAnalyser on the faulty node
cluster res ACS_PRC_EventAnalyser_0 /off /wait if Node A Faulty
cluster res ACS_PRC_EventAnalyser_1 /off /wait if Node B Faulty
12. Stop acs_prc_clustercontrol on the faulty node
net stop ACS_PRC_Clustercontrol
13. Stop Cluster Services on the faulty node
net stop clussvc
14. Set cluster's hardware and software in a state that allows replacement of the faulty
node

Wait until the Manual Intervention Allowed (MIA) LED is lit and monitor shows safe to power
off. Disconnect the cable from the faulty node by following order.
1) Power cable
2) Public Ethernet cable
3) IPN Ethernet cable
4) External alarms cable
5) Alarm panel cable
6) Both Heartbeat Ethernet cables
7) Both Serial cables (to CPU board and AM board)
8) Monitor cable
9) Keyboard/Mouse adapter cable
10) Disconnect the upper SCSI connector on the active node
11) Disconnect the lower SCSI connector on the active node
12) Disconnect the upper SCSI connector on the faulty node
13) Disconnect the lower SCSI connector on the faulty node
15. Replace the faulty node and connect the power cable to the fresh node.
16. Connect your local machine to the fresh APG node by local console port.
17. Transfer the APG backup of faulty node & burrestore.exe file in the F drive of
the APG node by
Go to Run> type \\192.168.200.1\F$
18. Check the date, time and time zone in the new node
19. Restore the new node by the backup of the faulty node
burrestore –a image name
burrestore –r image name
20. shutdown the node by
prcboot –s
21. Pull out the Power cable and connect all the cable in following order
1) Both Heartbeat cables
2) Public Ethernet cable
3) IPN Ethernet cable
4) External alarms cable
5) Alarm panel cable
6) Both Serial cables (to CPU board and AM board)
7) Monitor cable
8) Keyboard/Mouse adapter cable
9) Connect the upper SCSI connector on the replaced node
10) Connect the lower SCSI connector on the replaced node
11) Connect the upper SCSI connector on the active node
12) Connect the lower SCSI connector on the active node
13) Power cable
22. Check the prcstate
23. Check the date /t and time /t
24. Check the firmware version
25. Check the amversion
26. Check the Initiator ID
27. Check the channel swap setting
28. Integrate the shared mirrored disk drive.
