[Linux-cluster] how to get my cluster working if my /dev/sda becomes /dev/sdb (CLVM, iscsi, ERROR: Module iscsi_sfnet in use)



Hi,
I configured a cluster using gfs1 on rhel-4 kernel version  2.6.9-55.16.EL.
Using iscsi-target and initiator.
gfs1 mount is exported via nfs service.

I can manually stop all services in following sequence:
nfs, portmap, rgmanager, gfs, clvmd, fenced, cman, ccsd.
to stop my iscsi service first I give 'vgchange -aln' then I stop iscsi service, otherwise i get an error of module in use, as I have an clusterd lvm over iscsi device (/dev/sda1)

Everything works fine, but when i am trying to simulate a possible problem, f.e. iscsi service is stopped I get following error.

Test1:
When cluster is working I stop iscsi service with
 /etc/init.d/iscsi stop
Searching for iscsi-based multipath maps
Found 0 maps
Stopping iscsid:                                           [  OK  ]
Removing iscsi driver: ERROR: Module iscsi_sfnet is in use
                                                           [FAILED]
To stop my iscsi service without a failure,  I stop all cluster services as follows.
/etc/init.d/nfs stop
/etc/init.d/portmap stop
/etc/init.d/rgmanager stop
/etc/init.d/gfs stop
/etc/init.d/clvmd stop
/etc/init.d/fenced stop
/etc/init.d/cman stop
/etc/init.d/ccsd stop
Every service stops with a ok message. now again when i stop my iscsi service I get same error
 /etc/init.d/iscsi stop
Removing iscsi driver: ERROR: Module iscsi_sfnet is in use                             [FAILED]

On my iscsi device (which is /dev/sd1), i have a LVM with gfs1 file-system,
as all the cluster services are stopped, I try to deactivate the lvm with:

 vgchange -aln
  /dev/dm-0: read failed after 0 of 4096 at 0: Input/output error
  No volume groups found

At the moment if I start my iscsi service, my /dev/sda becomes /dev/sdb as well as iscsi service gives me following error:

[root pr0031 new]# /sbin/service iscsi start
Checking iscsi config:                                     [  OK  ]

As my /dev/sda1 became /dev/sdb1, if i start cluster services, I have no gfs mount.

Sep  5 16:47:16 pr0031 clurgmgrd[21062]: <notice> Stopping service flx


After the above situation I need to restart the nodes, which I don't want to, I created a script to handle all this, in which if i restart all the services first, first I get the same /dev/sdb ( which should be /dev/sda so that my cluster can have a gfs mount). When I restart all the services second time, I get no error (this time iscsi disk is attached with /dev/sda device name and I don't see any /dev/iscsctl exist error at the iscsi startup time) and cluster starts working.
my script : http://www.grex.org/~anuj/cluster.txt

So, how to get my cluster working if my /dev/sda becomes /dev/sdb?

Thanks and Regards
Anuj Singh
