9.9 Generating a Cluster Configuration Report

A cluster configuration report can help you diagnose problems with the cluster nodes and resources. The report contains the following information for the selected cluster:



Cluster name

The dot delimited distinguished name of the selected cluster (clustername.context).


The date and time the report was generated.

Cluster status

  • Current Nodes
  • Quorum Triggers
  • List of resources (Name, State, Location, Lives, Up Since)

Cluster options

  • Quorum Triggers (Number of nodes, Timeout)
  • Protocol Setting (Heartbeat, Tolerance, Master Watchdog, Slave Watchdog, Maximum retransmits)
  • List of nodes (Name, State, Number, IP Address, and Distinguished Name)
  • Resource Mutual Exclusion Groups

Resource details

Information listed (as it applies) by resource for the master IP address resource and each of the cluster resources:

  • Policies (Follows masters, Ignore quorum, Start mode, Failover mode, Failback mode, Assigned nodes)
  • Load script and timeout
  • Unload script and timeout
  • Monitor script
  • Protocols
  • Virtual server name
  • CIFS server name
  • IP address
  • Advertising protocols

To generate a cluster configuration report:

  1. In iManager, select Clusters > My Clusters.

  2. In your personalized My Clusters list, select the check box next to the cluster you want to manage.

    If the cluster does not appear in your list, add the cluster to your list as described in Section 8.2, Setting Up a Personalized List of Clusters to Manage.

  3. Click Action > Run Report.

    When you select Run Report, the generated report opens in a new window, instead of in the child frame. This allows you to print and save the report from any web browser.

  4. Use the scroll bar to view the report in the browser.

  5. (Optional) Use the browser options to print the report.

  6. (Optional) Save the report to a text file.

    Because some of the output is scripted, you must copy and paste the report content instead of using the browser’s File > Save as option.

    1. Click the cursor in the browser window where the report results are displayed, press Ctrl+A to select all, press Ctrl+C to copy the report to the clipboard.

    2. In a text editor, open a new document, then press Ctrl+V to paste the report in the document.

    3. Save the report document.
