critical impact:

libclua, cluamgr, clua_active - not available (CrUn379)

CLU Impacts CMD Impacts HDR Impacts LIB Impacts

Problem description

The libclua library, cluamgr, and clua_active commands exist on Tru64 UNIX but not on HP-UX.

The TruCluster Server cluster alias feature provides a single cluster IP address for high availability access, protection from network failures, and load balancing by redirecting traffic to an application that may reside on any cluster member node.

Tru64 UNIX TruCluster Server cluster alias functionality is not available on HP-UX. However, several alternative options are available, depending on your application needs.

Solution description

Review alternative options to cluster alias functionality and modify your application accordingly.

There is no equivalent to the TruCluster Server cluster alias APIs or commands within HP-UX. You will need to modify or rewrite applications with cluster alias dependencies.

For an overview of alternative options to cluster alias functionality, please see section 6 of the white paper, Transitioning Tru64 UNIX v5 Customers to HP-UX 11i v2: Analyzing the HP-UX 11i Roadmap Changes in Terms of File Systems, Clusters, and Infrastructure.
