    hi all,
    can i remove the engine_A log file when vcs is runing and then touch a new
    file to replace the old one ? is it no impact to VCS ?

    There is a process caslled halog that actually writes to the engine log
    file.

    Safest way to do this is to do the following:


    hastop -all -force


    This will stop VCS, but keep all your stuff running.

    Now, do whatever you want to do with the log file.

    Then on each node in the cluster

    hastart

    It might work if you just rename the file, but if the application has a
    file pointer to that file at that moment, who knows what can happen.
