Solution Control Server 8.5.x Release Notes
|Release Date||Release Type||Restrictions||AIX||Linux||Solaris||Windows|
This release contains the following new features and enhancements:
- New parameter for mlcmd command: The new mlcmd parameter -start-initapp <Application Name | DBID> [-usedbid] starts the application specified by Application Name (the default), or the DBID if usedbid is specified, without waiting for the status to change to Initializing/Running.
- Instructions for upgrading Solution Control Server to release 8.5 and later have been completely rewritten in a more concise and clearer manner. Refer to the Framework Migration Guide.
This release contains the following resolved issue:
Solution Control Server now completes the switchover of an HA Application, running in backup mode, into primary mode, in the following scenario:
- The second Application in the HA pair terminated and could not be re-started; it reported an error message to Solution Control Server, such as LCA_ERROR_APP_NOT_READY_TO_WORKS, before terminating.
- The disconnect-switchover-timeout option is configured on SCS to delay switchover.
Previously in this scenario, Solution Control Server was unable to complete the switchover.
No special procedure is required to upgrade to release 8.5.100.06.
