RE: [Linux-cluster] Add a fence device of type SUN ILOM



Hi*,

I have tried to set up this configfile here:

                <clusternode name="box1" nodeid="1" votes="1">
                        <multicast addr="224.0.0.1" interface="eth0"/>

                </resources>
        </rm>
</cluster>





The cluster is coming up without errors. But when I shutdown the network on one node nothing happens. The only message I get is 

dlm: closing connection to node 4 

On node 2 and 3.


Any suggestions?
Is there a timeout I have to wait for?

Why I can not ping my cluster address 192.168.50.6????

I believe that will do it.  I just tested shutting down the network interfaces on one node and fenced successfully used the ipmilan fencing agent to reboot the node.
