Re: [Cluster-devel] Change in rgmanager - broke my config



Hi,

I changed /usr/share/cluster/fs.sh thusly:

I have to waggle my finger at you; changing stuff like this can break
running clusters.. maybe it was in a release note that I didn't see, if
that's the case I retract my waggle and offer sincerest apologies =)

I had to change the device parameter as well in this case, when we're
using iscsi storage our app mounts a local disk for use as tmp space
when it starts.
