Description Ken Gaillot 2017-02-09 00:34:22 UTC
Description of problem: The ocf:heartbeat:pgsql resource agent calls crm_failcount in a certain error situation. This is not the appropriate means of indicating a node-fatal error, and could lead to unexpected behavior in a Pacemaker cluster.

Instead of using crm_failcount, the agent should return a hard error code such as OCF_ERR_ARGS or OCF_ERR_PERM.

The version of pacemaker that will be in RHEL 7.4 will have a change to crm_failcount which will break this usage, so it is important to have a fix in the same time frame.

This was discussed on the upstream mailing list, and a user offered to submit a fix, so a pull request may be forthcoming:

I have verified using our internal "pacemaker,resource,Postrgesql" test that it passes even with /usr/bin/crm_failcount having user rights 000 (resource-agents-3.9.5-104.el7)
