Re: [Linux-cluster] DR node in a cluster


All the nodes are connected to a single SAN at this moment through fibre.


 If you don't have enough nodes at a site to allow quorum to be
established, then when communication fails between sites you must fence
those nodes or risk data corruption when communication is

Yes true, but in this case a single node can made the cluster quorate. (qdisk vote=3 ,node votes=3, total=6) which is not recommened I guess (?).

A curiosity question:


How do you make sure that your storage will survive failure of *either* of your site without loss of data and continuity of service?

What storage configuration are you using?


Thanks and regards,

Subject: [Linux-cluster] DR node in a cluster




My GFS2 linux cluster has three nodes. Two at the data center and one at the DR site. If the nodes at DR site break/turnoff, all the services move to DR node. But if the 2 nodes at the data center lost communication with the DR node, I am not sure how does the cluster handles the split brain. So I am looking for some recommendation in this kind of scenario. I am usig Qdisk votes (=3) in this case.
