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

Yes, something is wrong.

I made little bit more research:

- stop cluster daemons on both nodes (node a & node b)

- start cluster on node a

It hangs 5 minutes on cman's fencing part like this:

Starting cluster:
   Loading modules... done
   Mounting configfs... done
   Starting ccsd... done
   Starting cman... done
   Starting daemons... done
   Starting fencing...

... and in process list there is this:

/sbin/fence_tool -w -t 300 join

... so thats the 5 minutes.

Question is: why it waits there 54 minutes?

- after 5 minutes waiting, node a says:

Starting fencing... failed

Starting the Quorum Disk Daemon:                           [  OK  ]
Starting Cluster Service Manager:                          [  OK  ]

... and then it loads qdiskd and after a while it has 2 votes and it
starts services normally and voila, I have a running cluster with one

Node  Sts   Inc   Joined               Name

   2   X      0                        areenasql2

But log says nothing about that failed fencing. Fencing is configured
correctly, I use HP ILO and everything is ok. Fencing works in running
cluster ok, both nodes can fence eachother.

Node a should fence node b in this situation and maby it's trying to do
it somehow, but it logs nothing. It should log at least "fence failed
etc." if it's unable to fence node b...

And what's more important, if we think node a can't fence node b in this
startup situation, it should NOT start services but it starts....
