Re: [Linux-cluster] Can a 2-node Cluster boot-up with only one active node?

Hi Lon,

Here are some relevant information from the Cluster:

** What is happening:
 If I boot node1 with node2 powered off, it stops for 5 minutes during the
start of ccsd, and after that it regains quorum, qdiskd starts successfully,
but fenced keeps trying to start for 2 minutes and then it gives up with
a "failed" message.

** Relevant log messages collected after boot:

** Kernel version (uname -r): RHEL4u4 with latest kernel approved by EMC,
the EMC eLab was done for RHEL4U4, not RHEL 4.5, so we can't upgrade the
kernel, unless we move on everything to RHEL 4.5:

** Installed cluster package versions (same on both nodes):

** What happens if I boot up the other node (node2):
- ccsd comes up after just a few seconds on node2
- all other cluster daemons start successfully
- fenced and rgmanager on node1 both start
- the logs show node1 starting services when node2 came up:
Oct  4 12:51:44 hercules01 clurgmgrd[10548]: <info> Logged in
SG "usrm::manager"
Oct  4 12:51:44 hercules01 clurgmgrd[10548]: <info> Magma Event: Membership

Oct  4 12:52:24 hercules01 clurgmgrd[10548]: <info> State change: node2 UP

The only packages not up to date are the kernel related ones, which I
believe are the correct ones for my kernel version.

Please, tell me if you see any mistake on this setup. The problem is that
the customer cannot boot up the systems if one node is eventually dead. If
both nodes are up and one goes down, the functionality is OK. But as it is
now, if the remaining node reboots, the services cannot come up.

Thank you very much.
