Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS Issues

I recommend updating this - others may have been bit by the legacy article (after we confirm it really works).

I am new to the list but I was hoping to run a few questions by you. Hopefully this is the correct forum for these questions.

We are in the process of evaluating GFS for an Oracle 9i RAC implementation.

I originally downloaded and installed this GFS-6.0.0-1.2.src.rpm using this http://www.gyrate.org/misc/gfs.txt , the Admin Guide (from RedHat) and a Sistina RAC install guide(from RedHat).

That worked to a degree in that I could mount one node on the system, but all other nodes are blocked from mounting the gfs. This problem led me to the 8 char limitation https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=127828 . My node names are unique in the first 8 chars (e.g. bwing.domain.com and xwing.domain.com) .

First Attempt Environment


RedHat AS3

Kernel Version 2.4.21-15.ELsmp

Using GNBD to export an external scsi array

Used the example pool configs from the RAC install guide

manual fencing (status for all nodes is "Logged In")

2 nodes, 1 GNBD and dedicated lock_gulm server

Not sure what to do I looked for a newer version of GFS.

Now I am going through the steps I did before except now I am getting a build error on the rpm-build.

rpmbuild --rebuild --target i686 /usr/src/redhat/SRPMS/GFS-6.0.2-26.src.rpm

The warnings I think I can ignore, but I am not sure what to do about the build errors.

New Version environment


RedHat AS3

Kernel version 2.4.21-27.0.4.ELsmp

Got my GFS src rpm from ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/updates/enterprise/3AS/en/RHGFS/SRPMS/

Any help would be appreciated on either issue and please let me know if there is more information that is required.
