Breaking HA Cluster mode from 6120 UCS setup

Hi,

This was a used UCS system and i borrowed it to my lab. I just powered on onyl 6100 from the cluster. No scope command works in this single 6100. I was looking for a command to break the cluster. But could not find one in any confiuration guide. Could any one tell me the command to disable the cluster from 6100? In documentation guide nothing is mentioned that 6100 need to be in a cluster. In fact i found in the config guide, setup with both single and double 6120's

cisco-A-A(local-mgmt)# show cluster state

Cluster Id: 0x77b2297e0a0711df-0xbfe7000decf4ca84

B: UNRESPONSIVE, INAPPLICABLE, (Management services: UNRESPONSIVE)

If it's for a lab system, just erase the configuration.

Connect local-management

erase configuration

commit-buffer

Ensure you have console access and you can set up the system in standalone mode.

Robert

That seems workable to me. But i was looking for a formal ommand to break the cluster. Not sure why cluster so tightly binded meaning once created, no way to disable it.

Correct.  Most users may go from Standalone to cluster - which you can do, but you can't do the reverse.  Like I said your option here is to erase the configuration and just reconfigure it.  Safer & faster.

This will erase everything, including pools, SP,....

I would do a backup first in any case.

As Robert already said:

Naresh, Is there a reason you

Naresh,

 

Is there a reason you need to go from Cluster to standalone?  Is this a design change?  It's really not recommended to run "critical data" and applications on a single FI.  You leave yourself a single point of failure.

 

In your case what you could do

1. Run an All-Configuration backup (just to be safe).

2. Run a "Logical" Configuration backup (which will contains only relevant items such as service profiles, VLANs, VSANs, pools, and policies.)

3. Erase configuration on both FI's.

4. Configure your single FI in standalone mode

5. Restore the Logical Configuration backup.

 

In the event anything doesn't work or you need to roll-back to your current Cluster state you can restore the "All-Configuration" backup, and re-add the peer FI back into the cluster from CLI.
