Problem: A node canister has a location node error

The node error listed on the service assistant home page or in the event log can indicate a location error.

A location error means that the node canister or the enclosure midplane has been moved or changed. This is normally due to a service action not being completed or not being implemented correctly.

A number of different conditions are reported as location errors. Each condition is indicated by different node error. To find out how to resolve the node error, go to Procedure: Fixing node errors.

Be aware that after a node canister has been used in a system, the node canister must not be moved to a different location, either within the same enclosure or in a different enclosure because this might compromise its access to storage, or a host application's access to volumes. Do not move the canister from its original location unless directed to do so by a service action.
