Description Jan Pokorný 2016-02-25 10:27:48 EST
As it is too late to try change anything such late in the game
as the initscripts had already started dlm_controld by the time
Pacemaker is started.

Users should not be misled to think that agent is of any use
in Pacemaker + CMAN scenario.

At least this was one of the observations that arose from one of
the internal discussions (take it with a grain of salt for now).
Comment 1 Jan Pokorný 2016-05-24 17:46:26 EDT
I was trying to reconsider whether this is a good idea or not.

Why it is a good idea to drop this from Pacemaker-CMAN orchestra:

1. /etc/init.d/cman start/stops both {dlm,gfs}_controld automatically,
   so it should(?) work just as predestined in ocf:pacemaker:controld
   agent (globally unique clones)

2. agent uses "-s 0" as a default option, and this is not recognized
   by RHEL 6 dlm version:
# dlm_controld -V
> dlm_controld (built Feb  1 2016 07:06:27)
> Copyright (C) Red Hat, Inc.  2004-2010  All rights reserved.
# dlm_controld -s 0
> dlm_controld: invalid option -- 's'
> Please use '-h' for usage.

3. even if start and monitor actions might work well out of the box,
   it's unclear if Pacemaker-triggered stop action would be acceptable
   under all circumstances (note that dlm_controld is started before
   gfs_controld and they are stopped in reverse order in cman initscript)

Plus consider a subtle character of DLM/Pacemaker integration (not sure
if that affects CMAN/fenced as well):

Comment 2 Ken Gaillot 2016-05-24 18:02:51 EDT
It does make sense to remove it. In RHEL 6, the CMAN init script manages dlm_controld, so it should not be managed as a cluster resource.
Comment 7 michal novacek 2017-01-13 10:17:40 EST
I have verified that ocf:pacemaker:controld is not part of pacemaker rpm in pacemaker-1.1.15-4

before the fix pacemaker-1.1.15-3.el6.x86_64

# rpm -ql paceamker | grep controld

after the fix pacemaker-1.1.15-3.el6.x86_64
# rpm -ql paceamker | grep controld
