Re: [Linux-cluster] Starting two-node cluster with only one node




Thanks for the tip. It helped by stopping each node kicking each other, as per the logs, but still I have a split brain status. 

On node01

# /usr/sbin/cman_tool nodes

Another thing that I have noticed,

1. Start node01 with only itself as the member of the cluster
2. Update cluster.conf to have node02 as an additional member
3. Start node02

Yields both nodes being quorate (split brain) but only node02 tries to fence out node01. After some time, clustat will yield both of them being in the same cluster. Then I will be starting clvmd on node02 but will not be successful. After trying to start the clvmd service, clustat will yield split brain again. 

Are there some troubleshootings that I should be doing?
