Verifying that the netgroup file is present on all nodes

Contributors Download PDF of this page

If you have loaded netgroups into storage virtual machines (SVMs), before you upgrade or revert, you must verify that the netgroup file is present on each node. A missing netgroup file on a node can cause an upgrade or revert to fail.

The NFS Reference contains more information about netgroups and loading them from a URI.

  1. Set the privilege level to advanced: set -privilege advanced

  2. Display the netgroup status for each SVM: vserver services netgroup status

  3. Verify that for each SVM, each node shows the same netgroup file hash value: vserver services name-service netgroup status

    If this is the case, you can skip the next step and proceed with the upgrade or revert. Otherwise, proceed to the next step.

  4. On any one node of the cluster, manually load the netgroup file: vserver services netgroup load -vserver vserver_name -source uri

    This command downloads the netgroup file on all nodes. If a netgroup file already exists on a node, it is overwritten.
