[Linux-cluster] Re: Severe problems with 64-bit RHCS on RHEL5.1



Hi Harri,

Please consider using a smart mailclient which can wrap your mails.. It
makes things a lot easier.

I have a 2 node cluster RHEL5.1 on 64bit (IBM Blades) configured which
works well for me (so far).

For me fencing would hang for 3-4 minutes before I had properly
configured fencing (with manual fallback), after adding manual fallback
I no longer have this issue.

When a node is fenced / rebooted, every now and then it will fence the
other node on restart. And if I shutdown and restart both nodes
simultaneously they will fence like this (has happened 2 times on tests)

A boots quicker and establishes the cluster
B fences A when it starts
A fences B when it starts
B boots and joins the cluster..

This was before I configured qdisk, and I have not yet tested this
behaviour after qdisk was setup.

qdisk works well for me in a very similar setup. I have done manual
fencing tests / hardboot tests, which didn't produce anything like you
describe.

heuristic ping works fine for me out of the box..
