RE: [Linux-cluster] question about creating partitions and gfs



Jason, I just realized what the problem is. You need to apply the config to a
"pool"
not a normal device.  What do your pooll definitions look like? The one you
created
for the config is where you need to point ccs_tool at to activate the
config...

Jason, couple of questions.... (And I assume you are working with
RHEL3+GFS6.0x)


1. Are you actually using raw devices? if so, why? 
2. Does the device /dev/raw/raw64 actually exist on tf2?


GFS does not use raw devices for anything. The standard Redhat Cluster suite
does, but not GFS. GFS uses "storage pools".  Also, if memory servs me right,
later versions of GFS for RHEL3 need to be told what pools to use in the
"/etc/sysconfig/gfs" config file. Used to be that GFS just did a scan and
"found" the pools, but no longer I believe.

Hope this helps. If not, can you give more details about your config? 



Corey

yes, both boxes are connected to the storage, its a dell powervault 220S
configured for cluster mode. 

[root tf1 cluster]#  fdisk -l /dev/sdb

Disk /dev/sdb: 146.5 GB, 146548981760 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 17816 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512
= 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1             1      2433  19543041   83  Linux
[root tf1 cluster]# 

[root tf2 cluster]# fdisk -l /dev/sdb

Disk /dev/sdb: 146.5 GB, 146548981760 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 17816 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512
= 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1             1      2433  19543041   83  Linux
[root tf2 cluster]# 


so both sides see the storage.  

on tf1, I can start ccsd fine, but on tf2, I cant, and I see May  8 22:00:21
tf2 ccsd: Unable to open /dev/sdb1 (/dev/raw/raw64): No such device or
address May  8 22:00:21 tf2 ccsd: startup failed May  9 20:17:21 tf2 ccsd:
Unable to open /dev/sdb1 (/dev/raw/raw64): No such device or address May  9
20:17:21 tf2 ccsd: startup failed May  9 20:17:30 tf2 ccsd: Unable to open
/dev/sdb1 (/dev/raw/raw64): No such device or address May  9 20:17:30 tf2
ccsd: startup failed
[root tf2 cluster]# 

in the logs
