Re: [Linux-cluster] corosync issue with two interface directives

Just a wild stab in the dark, but both your multicast groups result in

redundant connections, which means different IP/port/MAC's, different
routes, in case one fails the other one takes over. Try changing the
multicast groups so that the they differ at the end of the address,
rather than at the beginning.

You could use for ring 0 and for ring 1. The key
thing to remember here is that when building a multicast MAC address,
you only use the low order 23 bits of the multicast IP address, thus
allowing for overlapping of close high order bits in the multicast IP


Hi Dan,

I tried changing my config file as per your recommendation, but it didn't seem to sort out the problem. The 'corosync-objctl' output only shows one ring. Oddly though, when I don't start corosync via cman, and instead start corosync by itself, both rings are in fact shown...

Also, I must claim ignorance - I am not familiar with how multicast addresses map to MAC addresses. Perhaps I am missing something fundamental here? I originally extrapolated the second ring's config by adapting the first ring which, itself, was adapted from example configs available in the docs.

Here is my current corosync.conf file:

# This is a skeleton example configuration file.
compatibility: whitetank

# Totem Protocol options.
totem {
	version: 2
	secauth: off
	threads: 0
	rrp_mode: passive
	interface {
		# This is the back-channel subnet, which is the primary network
		# for the totem protocol.
		ringnumber: 0
		mcastport: 5405
	interface {
		# This is the storage network, which acts as a secondary, backup
		# network for the totem protocol.
		ringnumber: 1
		mcastport: 5405
