RE: [Linux-cluster] Network failure results cluster environment unstable & fragile



Hi,


I'm not expert on Cluster. I have the same scenario as you do! but I'm not sure what you meant "Network goes off" - assuming network cable unplugged, network switch failed or NIC failed - I succeeded with bonding NICs and redundant switch.


someone may advice with any other way..




Hope this is helpful



Thanks and regards


- Hirantha

Please help me to resolve my problem


If network goes off on node1, and service which were not running on node1
are started by node1 with shared storage mount point, which was already
running on node 2 but both of these nodes are not able to communicate to
each other, node2 anyway already running the same service with shared
storage mount point. Because of Fencing both of these nodes try to kill
each other. Both of they got hanged up at "Stoping Cluster manager
Services.".In /var/log/messages, it shows fencing s1, fence successful.

If we disable fencing than

If network comes back nodes don't synchronize with each other. Shared
storage mount point is available to both the servers. If they try to access
storage at same storage gives IO errors. Hence this entire setup become
very unstable, fragile.
