Issues with failover of SAPInstance resources when `sap_cluster_connector` is used on SAP instances managed by pacemaker

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I've enabled the sap_cluster_connector so that I can manage SAP NetWeaver instances both with Pacemaker and with outside tools. When I use outside tools like sapcontrol, the cluster resource fails over.
  • Failover of SAPInstance cluster resource does not happen when using sap_cluster_connector, for example when the failover is triggered by running sapcontrol -nr 01 -function HAFailoverToNode as the <sid>adm user.


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, 8, 9 (with the High Availability Add-on)
  • sap-cluster-connector package
  • SAPInstance resource agent configured with sap_cluster_connector
