Monitor Knowledgebase

Summary

This monitor looks at the membership status of the current node in the NLB cluster. If the node status is Converged which means that the node is participating in the cluster, the state of this monitor will be healthy. If the node status is anything except of Converged, the state of this monitor will be unhealthy. If the node is stopped, the monitor health state will be critical. If the node is suspended, draining, not properly configured, or converging, the monitor health state will be warning.

Causes

If this node is not part of the cluster, the monitor state will be unhealthy.

Resolutions

In order to resolve the problem, start the NLB node using the inline task provided below or using the Network Load Balancing Manager. If node status is Suspended, you need first resume the node and only then start the node.
