(Veritas) Error while stopping the fencing driver

You might get an error when you stop the fencing driver.


  1. Stop the Veritas cluster service by using hastop on all the nodes.
  2. Try stopping the fencing driver again.
  3. If the fencing driver does not stop, remove the name of the coordinator diskgroup from /etc/vxfendg.
  4. In the /etc/vxfenmode file, make the following change: vxfen_mode=disabled
  5. Stop the fencing driver by using the following command: /etc/init.d/vxfen stop
    Note: It is best to halt all the nodes except the last one in the cluster.
