Error description

  • In a Db2 pureScale environment, a GPFS mount resource as seen in
    the lssam output may report offline for a monitoring cycle due
    to being unable to access information contained within the
    /etc/filesystems (AIX) or /etc/fstab (Linux) file.
    
    Under normal circumstances, the mountVXXX_monitor.ksh script
    should not have any issue accessing information located within
    this file. If it is suspected that the mountVXXX_monitor.ksh
    script has unexpectedly exit with return code of 2 due to this,
    then investigate the system logs for messages reported by the
    mountVXXX_monitor.ksh script. The following should be seen if
    debug level system logging is enabled:
    
    Oct 13 20:43:02 host01 user:debug
    mountV111_monitor.ksh[6095034]: Returning 2 for mount
    /db2/gpfsmount1
