Re: [Linux-cluster] dlm-pcmk-3.0.17-1.fc14.x86_64 and gfs-pcmk-3.0.17-1.fc14.x86_64 woes

FYI, per:

In http://sourceware.org/cluster/doc/usage.txt, it looks like example C.1 in http://www.clusterlabs.org/doc/en-US/Pacemaker/1.1/html-single/Clusters_from_Scratch/index.html#ap-cman should be changed to:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<cluster config_version="1" name="beekhof">
  <fence_daemon clean_start="0" post_fail_delay="0" post_join_delay="3"/>
    <clusternode name="pcmk-1" nodeid="1">
    <clusternode name="pcmk-2" nodeid="2">
  <cman two_node="1" expected_votes="1"/>

Never mind, I figured it out ... I needed to install the gfs2-cluster

It's all working now. Thanks to those who helped me get this going,

So you're still using Pacemaker to mount/unmount the filesystem and
other services?
If so, were there any discrepancies in the documentation describing
how to configure this?

Good morning,

This is what I did to get the file system going:


yum install -y httpd gfs2-cluster gfs2-utils
chkconfig gfs2-cluster on
service gfs2-cluster start

mkfs.gfs2 -p lock_dlm -j 2 -t siue-cs:iscsi /dev/sda1

cat <<-END | crm
configure primitive gfs ocf:heartbeat:Filesystem params
device="/dev/sda1" directory="/var/www/html" fstype="gfs2" op start
interval="0" timeout="60s" op stop interval="0" timeout="60s"
configure clone dual-gfs gfs


I think this sed command was also missing from the guide:

sed -i '/^#<Location \/server-status>/,/#<\/Location>/{s/^#//;s/Allow
from .example.com/Allow from}' /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

I've attached the full record of all the commands that I used to set up
my nodes to this email. It has, at the end, the final result of "crm
configure show".
