    Starting, Relocating, and Stopping IP/MPLSView from the GUI or CLI

    You can use either the Web browser GUI or the CLI to start IP/MPLSView as a high availability cluster service. Use the IP/MPLS View high availability GUI if you are accessing IP/MPLSView in a Web browser; use CLI commands if you are accessing IP/MPLSView by means of SSH.

    Note: Before you start the application server, make sure you copy the npatpw license file to the /u/wandl/db/sys/ directory on both application servers.

    Starting the Application Server Using the GUI

    To start the IP/MPLSView application server by using the GUI:

    1. Select the Service Groups tab.
    2. Select the name of the service group to display expanded details for that group.

      Figure 1: High Availability Service Groups Window

    3. From the Start on node drop-down menu in the Status field, select the target node on which to start the application server.

      If you are running the database independently from the application, you must start the database server first.

    4. Click the play icon (right arrow) below the name of the selected service group to start the IP/MPLSView application server as a cluster service on the specified node.

    Starting the Application Server Using the CLI

    To start the IP/MPLSView application server by using the CLI:

    1. Issue the following command as the root user, where service-group is the name of the configured service group, and target-node is the name of the node on which you want to start the IP/MPLSView application server.
      # clusvcadm -e service-group -m target-node
    2. Verify the cluster status.
      # /usr/sbin/clustat
      # /u/wandl/bin/status_mplsview

    Relocating the Application Server Using the GUI

    The steps for switching the IP/MPLSView application server to run on a different node are identical to the steps for starting the application server.

    To relocate the IP/MPLSView application server to run on a different node by using the GUI:

    1. Select the Service Groups tab.
    2. Select the name of the service group to display expanded details for that group.
    3. From the Start on node drop-down menu in the Status field, select the target node to which you want to relocate the application server.
    4. Click the play icon (right arrow) below the name of the selected service group to relocate the IP/MPLSView application server to the specified node.

    Relocating the Application Server Using the CLI

    To relocate the IP/MPLSView application server to run on a different node by using the CLI:

    1. Issue the following command as the root user, where service-group is the name of the configured service group, and target-node is the name of the node on which you want to start the IP/MPLSView application server.
      # clusvcadm -e service-group -m target-node
    2. Verify the cluster status.
      # /usr/sbin/clustat
      # /u/wandl/bin/status_mplsview

    Stopping the IP/MPLSView High Availability Cluster Using the GUI

    You can use either the Web browser GUI or the CLI to stop (disable) the IP/MPLSView high availability cluster.

    To stop the IP/MPLSView high availability cluster by using the GUI:

    1. Select the Service Groups tab.

      Figure 2: High Availability Service Groups Stop Action

    2. Select the name of the service group to disable.
    3. Click Disable.

    Stopping the IP/MPLSView High Availability Cluster Using the CLI

    To stop the IP/MPLSView high availability cluster by using the CLI:

    1. Issue the following command as the root user, where service-group is the name of the configured service group:
      # clusvcadm -s service-group
    2. Verify the cluster status.
      # /u/wandl/bin/status_mplsview

      The main linux_cluster_mplsview.sh script controls starting and stopping for failover and leaving cluster mode.
