Sun Cluster 3.0 Daemons

The Sun Cluster 3.0 12/01 software adds several additional daemons to a system. These include both daemons running on the system, as well as additional RPC services. The following daemons run on a default Sun Cluster 3.0 12/01 software installation:

# ps -ef | grep cluster
  root    4   0 0  Oct 25 ?    0:03 cluster
  root  416   1 0  Oct 25 ?    0:00 /usr/cluster/lib/sc/rpc.pmfd
  root   82   1 0  Oct 25 ?    0:00 /usr/cluster/lib/sc/clexecd
  root   83  82 0  Oct 25 ?    0:00 /usr/cluster/lib/sc/clexecd
  root  453   1 0  Oct 25 ?    0:01 /usr/cluster/lib/sc/rgmd
  root  426   1 0  Oct 25 ?    0:00 /usr/cluster/lib/sc/rpc.fed
  root  439   1 0  Oct 25 ?    0:00 /usr/cluster/bin/pnmd

A Sun Cluster 3.0 12/01 software installation also installs the following RPC services in the /etc/inetd.conf file:

# Start of lines added by SUNWscu
100145/1 tli rpc/circuit_v wait root /usr/cluster/lib/sc/rpc.scadmd rpc.scadmd
100151/1 tli rpc/circuit_v wait root /usr/cluster/lib/sc/rpc.sccheckd rpc.sccheckd -S
# End  of lines added by SUNWscu

The following RPC services are required by the Sun Cluster 3.0 12/01 software and must be present in the /etc/inetd.conf file:

# rpc.metad
100229/1    tli   rpc/tcp     wait  root  /usr/sbin/rpc.metad rpc.metad
# rpc.metamhd
100230/1    tli   rpc/tcp     wait  root  /usr/sbin/rpc.metamhd rpc.metamhd

The reviewed configuration uses Solstice DiskSuite_ software which requires the following RPC services in the /etc/inetd.conf file:

# rpc.metamedd - DiskSuite mediator
100242/1    tli   rpc/tcp     wait  root  /usr/sbin/rpc.metamedd rpc.metamedd
# rpc.metacld - DiskSuite cluster control
100281/1    tli   rpc/tcp     wait  root  /usr/sbin/rpc.metacld rpc.metacld

If you use Veritas Volume Manager software instead of Solstice DiskSuite software, leave the appropriate Veritas RPC entries in the /etc/inetd.conf file enabled.
