Environment

Novell Cluster Services
Novell Open Enterprise Server 11 (OES 11) Linux
Novell Open Enterprise Server 11 (OES 11) Linux Support Pack 2

Situation

Trying to modify a cluster resource load | unload | monitor script and after pasting in additional commands and hitting apply,  iManager hangs and never applies the updated text into the scripts.  The iManager connection appears to be hung and will eventually time out but the cluster master node is also in a bad state where any cluster commands just hang.

Resolution

If you need to have more than 3200 bytes in a load | unload | monitor script, then you may use this workaround solution.
Workaround:
Add commands into a separate script and call the script from within the resource script.
You will need to copy this script  to each node in the cluster and make proper permissions assignments so the script can be executed.

Cause

There is a limit to the number of characters we support in a load | unload | monitor scripts.
The character limit is 3200 bytes.   Link to Novell Documentation
