Re: [Linux-cluster] A few GFS newbie questions: journals, etc



I lowered my votes to 0 and that didn't work for me.

Here is my current cluster.conf

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<cluster name="SAN1" config_version="1">

<cman two_node="1" expected_votes="1">
</cman>

<clusternodes>
<clusternode name="data" votes="1">
        <fence>
                <method name="manual">
                        <device name="human" agent="fence_manual"/>
                </method>

        </fence>
</clusternode>

<clusternode name="front0" votes="1">
        <fence>
                <method name="single">
                        <device name="human" agent="fence_manual"/>
                </method>
        </fence>
</clusternode>

<clusternode name="front1" votes="0">
        <fence>
                <method name="single">
                        <device name="human" agent="fence_manual"/>
                </method>
        </fence>
</clusternode>

</clusternodes>

<fence_devices>
        <device name="apc1" agent="fence_apc" ipaddr="10.1.1.1"
login="apc" passwd="apc"/>
        <device name="brocade1" agent="fence_brocade" ipaddr="10.1.1.2"
login="user" passwd="pw"/>
        <device name="brocade2" agent="fence_brocade" ipaddr="10.1.1.3"
login="user" passwd="pw"/>
        <device name="human" agent="fence_manual"/>
</fence_devices>

</cluster>

This is the error that I get still.

Starting Cluster (ccsd, fence, clvm, gnbd): cluster/sbin/cman_tool: the
two-node option requires exactly two nodes with one vote each and
expected votes of 1 (node_count=3 vote_sum=2)

Am I misunderstanding a step or something.

Thanks,
 
Jon
