Hi group,

we changed some TSAMP-policies bei xml-files with to following working procedure:
1. samctrl -M T
2. sampolicy -q -f -d
3. sampolicy -q -a policy.xml
4. lssam #check
5. samctrl -M F
With this procedure we don't get an outage of the automated resources.
But in one domain we noticed at the checkpoint several ResourceGroups in status PENDING ONLINE, though all members were ONLINE.
After switching to MANUEL=FALSE, alls Groups we correctly online again.

Why could this happend? Is the RecoveryRM is still in sleep mode?

Regards,
Manfred Farwick

    Hi Mani,

    we see the same behavior when we update our policies. We are using Lock Requests and the cli-commands (mkrg, addrgmbr, mkrsrc, chrsrc, ...) instead of Manual mode and sampolicy, but the behaviour is the same.
    I'm not sure, but it seems to me, that this works as designed:

    A resource state is still monitored by TSAMP (IBM.GblResRM) while lock/manual mode is active.
    Resource Groups are not monitored by IBM.GblResRM, because they are under control of the "brain" IBM.RecRM, which is deactivated by lock/manual mode. So, the aggregated state of a resource group is not calculated till the resource group is unlocked or manual mode is switched off.

    As I said, I'm not 100% sure, but this could be an explanation.

    Cheers,
    Thomas

    Hi,

    while it is true that there will be no OpState changes when the resource group is locked, there are updates during ManualMode with SA MP 3.2.2 or higher. Prior to SA MP 3.2.2 the OpState of resource groups has not been updated during ManualMode, but with 3.2.2 we improved the behavior of resource groups.
    If you are running a lower version than SA MP 3.2.2, you will need to upgrade to at least this level to get this behavior. If you however observe the issue with SA MP 3.2.2 or higher, please open a PMR.

    Thank you,
    Enrico

    Hi,
    wow that was a very fastz answer. Thank you both a lot.

    I just checked our version:
    glpbapb21701:/home/xgsamadm:>samversion
    rsa321s002a 3.2.1.2 Mar 23 2011 16:58:09

    So we have to upgrade.

    Thank you for clarifying.
