Description Robert Hell 2007-03-30 12:16:52 UTC
Description of problem:
If using qdiskd with a quorum disk rgmanager ist not able to start services.
Without starting qdiskd rgmanager works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 5: cman-2.0.60-1.el5, rgmanager-2.0.23-1 (x86_64)

How reproducible:
Use a quorum disk

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure quorum disk in cluster.conf
2. start cman
3. start qdiskd
4. start rgmanager  

Actual results:
no services running, clustat hangs when starting, system-config-cluster hangs 
when starting, /var/log/messages:
Mar 30 14:09:27 pg-ba-001 clurgmgrd[20629]: <err> #34: Cannot get status for 
service service:pg-ba-vts1
Mar 30 14:09:43 pg-ba-001 clurgmgrd[20629]: <err> #34: Cannot get status for 
service service:pg-ba-vts2

Expected results:
Running services.

Additional info:
I attached my cluster.conf. Registration of quorum succeeds in cman.

Comment 2 Scott Bachmann 2007-04-12 15:07:45 UTC
Additional info:
clurgmgrd appears to be suffering the same fate as ccs_tool in bug #223519, 
treating the quorum disk as an actual node.  When clurgmgrd first starts, it 
attempts to make contact with the quorum disk "node" to determine the status 
of the services its running.  This times out, causing an "abort":

[12453] info: State change: Local UP
[12453] info: State change: sys-b UP
[12453] info: State change: /dev/dm-3 UP #Note: Quorum Disk
aight, need responses from 3 guys
VF: Push 2.12453 #1 (X#00020001)
VF: Checking for consensus...
VF: Timed out waiting for 1 responses
VF: Broadcasting ABORT (X#00020002)
VF: Aborted!

I was able to construct a proof of concept by adding code to 
rgmanager/src/daemons/main.c:membership_update() that sets cn_member to 0 for 
the cml_members element which has a cn_nodeid of 0.  Afterwords, the resource 
manager appears to function as expected.  Additionally, clustat no longer 
hangs with a “Timed out waiting for a response from Resource Group Manager” 

I hope that this information assists in leading to a proper patch, as mine was 
a rather brute force solution.

Fix fix

Hi, this should fix it.

Comment 4 Lon Hohberger 2007-04-16 14:52:00 UTC
Actually, it sounds like exactly what you did, but in a different location. ;)

Comment 5 Robert Hell 2007-04-16 17:24:23 UTC
Thanks for that!

Will there be an official errata for this problem?

Comment 6 Lon Hohberger 2007-04-19 20:22:46 UTC
I can't confirm one way or the other at this point, but it looks like it will be
in update 1 for certain.

Comment 7 Kiersten (Kerri) Anderson 2007-04-23 17:23:54 UTC
Fixing Product Name.  Cluster Suite was integrated into the Enterprise Linux for
version 5.0.

Do you have any news for me if this fix will be in an upcoming errata or in the 
next Update for RHEL5?
