Setting up an AIX HACMP 5.5 two node cluster and getting the following error message when running an "Extended Verification and Synchronization"
cldare: Unable to execute a command remotely on node CLUSTER_B, check clcomd.log file for more information. Any configuration changes must be propagated to the node before the node will be allowed to join the cluster.
The AIX environment that I'm working on doesn't allow RSH (or any r daemons) to run on it's nodes. I've picked through the /usr/es/sbin/cluster/utilities/cldare script which calls another called /usr/es/sbin/cluster/utilities/cl_rsh. So I'm assuming that this process is failing because there is no RSH allowed between hosts.
Am I correct to assume this? Also, with cldare not being able to execute commands on the remote host, what configuration changes need to be propagated? As far as I can tell, the cluster seems to be working fine.
