Description Derek Anderson 2004-09-29 17:54:10 UTC
Description of problem:  For init scripts and troubleshooting the
clmvd should return non-zero if it cannot be started.  In this case
the dlm module was not loaded.  The only way (I can see) to get more
info on this is by running it with the -d flag.

[root@link-10 root]# clvmd
[root@link-10 root]# echo $?
[root@link-10 root]# pidof clvmd

[root@link-10 root]# clvmd -d
  Unable to create lockspace for CLVM

  Can't initialise cluster interface

[root@link-10 root]# modprobe dlm
[root@link-10 root]# clvmd
[root@link-10 root]# echo $?
[root@link-10 root]# pidof clvmd
[root@link-10 root]#

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@link-10 root]# clvmd -V

Cluster LVM Daemon version 0.2.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Quorate cman cluster
2. Do not have the dlm module loaded
3. Start clvmd
Actual results:
clvmd did not start.  returned 0.

Expected results:
Return non-zero on failure.

This was because clvmd forked before trying to open the cluster
manager socket. So what it was saying was "success...I've forked",
then it failed whilst a daemon.

I've moved the fork to later on in the startup sequence now so it can
return error codes for the most basic problems. For others you'll just
have to watch syslog :)
