Description David Teigland 2005-06-29 04:11:54 UTC
Description of problem:
There is a corner case not handled by SM which can
result in new gfs mounts happening before a fencing
is completed for a failed node that had the fs mounted.
There is a chance of this leading to fs corruption.

- Nodes A, B, C are cluster members and all have joined
  the fence domain.

- A has gfs mounted, B and C do not.

- A fails.

- B and C begin fencing A.  This can take some time,
  especially noticable when using fence_manual.

- B and/or C mount gfs.

- The new mount by B/C is allowed to go ahead before
  the fencing for A has completed.

- If A is still writing to gfs and fencing has not
  completed before B/C do initial gfs recovery, the
  fs can be corrupted.

Comment 1 David Teigland 2005-06-30 05:30:00 UTC
Fixed in STABLE and RHEL4 branches:
SM should wait for all recoveries to complete before it processes
any group joins/leaves.  Fixes bz 162014.
