    If you enter the wrong MySQL root password, the Tiebreaker software indicates that it was installed successfully, but displays Access denied messages. To resolve the issue, you must uninstall the Tiebreaker software by using the rpm -e command, and then reinstall the software by using the correct MySQL root password.
  4. Verify the Tiebreaker connectivity to the MetroCluster software by opening an SSH connection from the Tiebreaker host to each of the node management LIFs and cluster management LIFs.
