Resource States

State

Meaning

In-Service, Protected (ISP)

Resource is operational. LifeKeeper local recovery operates normally. LifeKeeper inter-server recovery and failure recovery is operational.

 

In-Service, Unprotected (ISU)

Resource is operational. LifeKeeper local recovery mechanism is not operational for this resource. LifeKeeper inter-server recovery and failure recovery is operational.

 

Out-of-Service, Failed (OSF)

Resource has gone out-of-service because of a failure in the resource. Recovery has not been completed or has failed. LifeKeeper alarming is not operational for this resource.

 

Out-of-Service, Unimpaired (OSU)

Illegal (Undefined) State (ILLSTATE)

This state appears in situations where no state has been set for a resource instance. Under normal circumstances, this invalid state does not last long: a transition into one of the other states is expected. This state will occur if switchover occurs before all LifeKeeper information tables have been updated (for example, when LifeKeeper is first started up).
