Failed to add hot standby instances in liveCache Hotstandby setup


Hi All,

I am trying to setup Hot Standby between two HP-UX IA64 hosts and facing few issues. Given below are the setup details.

Hosts: HP-UX IA64 B.11.31

liveCache version:

Storage: EMC Symmetrix

maxDB Database Manager:

These are the steps I did using maxDB GUI

1. Added primary server (i.e. MASTER).

2. Made it online to validate the setup.

3. Made it offline, so that Hot Standby System can be enabled.

4. Enabled the Hot Standby System, and created a virtual server name entry.

5. Made the primary online, so that standby instances can be added.

6. Tried adding Hot Standby instances and saw a pop-up message with following error.


"-24994 Runtime environment error [hss_addstandby ...]; 20090, Check knldiag! Kernel exited with '0' before reaching ADMIN state"


Found the following error message in KnlMsg file of SECONDARY/STANDBY host.

The library is available on the STANDBY host and has correct permissions.


  1. ll /usr/symcli/shlib/apps/SAP/

Any help/pointer on resolving the issue will be appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
