This is you problem. Fencing is the most important feature of a cluster!

When you made access to a shared media, to grant data integrity all writes must be coordinated. If a node is not responding and the cluster is not sure it is not writing on the shared media, it pause the access to device to avoid or minimize data corruption.

Fencing is the action the device take against a "not responding node" to be sure it hasn't still access to the shared media. Fencing can be against the power of the "not responding node", turning it off or against the shared media, like blocking the port where the FC card is connected.

This happens for a short period of time, but after few seconds the service stop correctly. Are you running this script without connection between nodes? You cannot shutdown a service when the cluster is not quorate


Are you italian? Scrivimi pure in privato se hai ancora problemi
