Custer warning CRM:CRMViaSend: VipPostSend failed

I'm getting these messages on my log screen:

CLUSTER-<WARNING>-<10130>: CRM:CRMViaSend: VipPostSend failed Desc =
5A25E0C0, VipStatus = 11

CRM:CRMViaSend: VipPostSend failed SegCount 1, Length 1024, Status 0x1


Searching Novell.com turned up two hits:

http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/searchtid.cgi?10053279.htm
http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/searchtid.cgi?10057145.htm

Both of them indicate that the problem lies in my load & unload scripts
being over 924 characters.

I've removed everything that i can and replaced them with references to
load & unload scripts in the root dir of the clustered volumes. Each
script is now in the 200-300 byte range. However, the messages continue.

Any ideas?

have you restarted the cluster since you've shrunk the scripts? you
need to...

what i usually do to review the scripts is copy/paste them into a _text
only_ editor...

It doesn't look like it's going to let me! I can't even offline the
resources now.

It's not about review. I had to add one line, and that line took them
over the 924-byte limit. I've now separated all but the NSS volume
management commands into load.ncf & unload.ncf at the root of each
clustered volume.

Looks like i might need to reboot "the hard way" over the weekend.

Re: Custer warning CRM:CRMViaSend: VipPostSend failed

Not even the command line options?

I find that when the GUI packs up the command line normally works a
treat.

Re: Custer warning CRM:CRMViaSend: VipPostSend failed


well, once you go over the limit and you start getting that message, a
restart is in order. it should be mentioned in one of those TIDs. I
know I've read this somewhere before and when I've encountered it in
the past, I've had to restart the server(s).

I do all my "text editing" in a text editor and not in C1/iMan and
paste the text back into the app. This has 2 big advantages for me - i
have a macro that checks the size of the text and any
corruption/invalid characters would quickly become apparent...

Nope - absolutely nothing worked. I had to use the proverbial "big red
button".

I typically don't use either C1 or iManager, but NRM, which has usually
been fast & reliable for me (until this problem). Now i'm doing all of
my cluster load/unload script management with vim. 🙂

Re: Custer warning CRM:CRMViaSend: VipPostSend failed

Not even the four fingered salute?

I just hate pressing that big red button 🙂

I tried:

cluster leave
uldncs
reset server
Ctrl-Alt-Esc, down server

I probably could have done the 4 finger salute, but in my experience
it's no different from the big red button.

well, it certainly is a _lowest_ common denominator kind of thing...

Re: Custer warning CRM:CRMViaSend: VipPostSend failed


"reset server -f"
"restart server -f"
"down -f"

-f means "force" and sometimes it helps.

also, i try unloading every stinking nlm i can and retry those
commands.

Thanks, i'll try that.

That seems ridiculous - it's the job of the down command to type all of
those commands for me.

Is there any close equivalent to Linux's special keys?
Alt-SysRq-S Sync file systems
Alt-SysRq-U Remount all file systems read only
Alt-SysRq-B Reboot

When i was at uni and i complained about having to use vi, i was given a
severe lecture by the sysop, who said, "vi is the best programmer's
editor ever - go and learn it!" I did, and 16 years later i definitely
agree with him. Lowest common denominator it is most certainly NOT. 🙂

I don't normally do this but if you're having trouble DOWNing a server it
can help. I routinely have this happen in other OSes as well - the
"stuck" process is killed and traction is achieved...

C-A-Esc is a good magic keystroke to know, which you do. The debugger is
another - shift-shift-alt-esc. CAE is benign, the debugger is not. The
magic keys in linux are definitely not benign...

Re: Custer warning CRM:CRMViaSend: VipPostSend failed


yeah yeah yeah... 🙂 i had the same thing spouted to me when i
learned 'nix about the same time. SCO on a 386.

Back then it probably was the best editor going. Very little from the
80's can be considered "the best" nowadays, vi certainly included! <g>
