Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS hangs after several hours



More information.

I may have had an old version of ccsd which allowed me to get the
cluster running in the first place.  I can't get that far now.

I have IPv6 compiled in the kernel but no IPv6 interfaces defined.
I've given ccsd the -4 flag.

Checking logs after "ccs_test connect" shows that ccsd does not
believe the cluster is quorate.

/etc/cluster/status says that the cluster has reached quorum.  The IP
addresses are appropriate (I have dual-NIC hosts).

I recompiled ccsd with "DEBUG=1" and found that the "quorate" variable
was never set in ccsd.  I further found that cluster_communicator()
never received a valid fd from clu_connect and was therefore stuck in
a loop.  clu_connect appears to be a magma call.

Any advice on how to proceed?
