Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS2 cluster and fencing



Have you tried changing clean_start="0" to 1?

I'm setting up a simple 5 node "cluster" basically just for using a

I'm not really concerned about HA, I just want to be able to have all

 <fencedevices>

</cluster>

In my thinking this sets up a cluster where only one node need be up to
have quorum, and manual fencing is done for each node.

However, when I start up the first node in the cluster, the fencing
daemon hangs complaining about not being able to fence the other nodes.
I have to run fence_ack_manual -n <nodename> for all the other nodes,
then things start up fine.

Is there a way to make the node just assume all the other nodes are
fine and start up?  Am I really running much risk of the GFS2
filesystem failing out?

Thanks,
Ray
