Re: [Linux-cluster] cannot run cluster service



In the message dated: Thu, 11 Oct 2012 11:02:11 +0800,
The pithy ruminations from "Shanti Pahari" on 
<Re: [Linux-cluster] cannot run cluster service> were:
=> Thanks!
=> 
=> I updated the fencing method in each of the nodes. But after I added
=> volume_list = [ "vg_pdcpicpl02", "@PDC-PIC-PL-CL1", "@PDC-PIC-PL-CL2" ]
=> and
=> # dracut --hostonly --force /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)

Note that the lvm.conf data that is stored within the initrd.img is not an
exact copy of /etc/lvm/lvm.conf, but it is a filtered version, created
by "lvm dumpconfig". Previous bugs have meant that the embedded version was
not alway bootable...perhaps you're having a similar problem.

=> # shutdown -r now "Activating ramdisk LVM changes"
=> 
=> After that when the system tries to boot up:
=> Kernel panic – not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

I don't recall information from you about what OS distribution you are using,
but this problem sounds similar to:

	https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=517868


Before giving up on LVM and and moving all filesystem management out of RHCS
control, I had several problems with the the embedded copy of /etc/lvm.conf
that's stored within the initrd image. I ended up with a procedure where I
would replace the embedded version (produced with "lvm dumpconfig" by the
mkinitrd process) inside the initrd image with the full working version.

This procedure was necessary after any kernel or lvm.conf change.

An abbreviated set of steps (ommitting all error checking, etc) is:

	gunzip < $initrdfile > /tmp/initrd.unzipped.img
	cpio -i --make-directories < /tmp/initrd.unzipped.img
	cd /tmp/initrd.$$/etc/lvm
	cp /etc/lvm/lvm.conf .
	cd /tmp/initrd.$$
	find ./ | cpio -H newc -o > /tmp/initrd.unzipped.img
	gzip < /tmp/initrd.unzipped.img > /tmp/initrd.zipped.img
	mv /tmp/initrd.zipped.img $initrdfile

I do not recommend this as a standard procedure, but it might be worth
doing once, in order to see whether the embedded version of the lvm.conf
file used in the initrd.img is causing your problem.

=> Your fencing is not setup properly. You define the fence devices, but do not

=> 'fence_node <target>' and watch it get rebooted. Until then, your cluster 
=> will hang (by design) the first time there is a problem.
=> 
=> Assuming you want to use clustered LVM, you need to change locking_type to 
=> '3' and, I advise, change 'falllback_to_local_locking' to '0'. This also 
=> requires that the 'clvmd' daemon is running, which in turn needs cman to be 
=> running first.

=> What is your backing device for the LVM PV?
