[Linux-cluster] fencing problem



All,

I'll provide some more config details a little later, but thought
maybe some cursory information could yield a response.  Simple four
node cluster running RHEL4U7, latest RHEL cluster packages.  Three GFS
filesystems.  This morning one of our nodes remained responsive, but
was having some problems that required a reboot.  Unfortunately, most
commands from the command line were unsuccessful (Input/Output error,
seems the root filesystem may have been remounted read only).  I
decided to fence the node from another node in the cluster -- using
fence_node <nodename>.  This calls fence_drac.  The operation returned
successful, the node was fenced and rebooted.

After this fencing operation, all nodes reporting their Membership
state (as reported by cman_tool status) as Transition-Master.  Per
http://sources.redhat.com/cluster/faq.html#gfs_fencefreeze, I
understand that GFS will freeze briefly after fencing is performed.
The filesystems did not return to a responsive state.  After many
transition restarts, all nodes leave the cluster (as expected).  Some
logs and cluster.conf below.
