This error appears in a JVMs SystemOut.log.
CWRLS0030W: Waiting for HAManager to activate recovery processing for local WebSphere server.
Check the SystemOut.log for event DCSV8030I.
DCSV8030I: DCS Stack DefaultCoreGroup at Member cell\node\JVM1: Failed to join or establish a view with member [cell\mgr\dmgr]. The reason is Not all candidates are connected ConnectedSetMissing = [ ] ConnectedSetAdditional [ cell\node\JVM2 ].
If the SystemOut.log contains event DCSV8030I, according to this IBM article, the cause of this problem is that two or more JVMs “disagree with each others member connection list”. In this scenario, the JVMs that disagree are JVM1 and JVM2.
The IBM article suggests that all members (aka JVMs) should be stopped and then restarted. Typically, stopping both JVMs, and then starting each JVM one at a time will resolve this issue. After stopping both JVMs, use the PS command to ensure there are no processes associated with either JVM.
~]# ps -ef | grep JVM1 ~]# ps -ef | grep JVM2
If there are any active processes with either JVM, kill the processes.
~]# kill -9 the_pid
In some scenarios, you may need to start JVM1 first, and then JVM2 second. Or, you may need to start JVM2 first, and then JVM1 second.
