Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 169139
Cluster hangs due to name length restriction
Last modified: 2009-04-16 16:10:39 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #169136 +++ - filed to ask
for sanity check cluster name length in system-config-cluster GUI.
Description of problem:
Red Hat GPS engineer on-site with customer reported cluster hung. The issue was
solved by restricting max cluster name to 15 characters.
From: Nicholas Strugnell (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Two bugzillas required:
1. Better documentation. The docs are particularly weak addressing how to get
the cluster manager started on the 2nd (and 3rd and 4th...) nodes after running
system-config-cluster on the 1st node. The 15 char limit also needs to be doc'd.
2. Need proper sanity checks in system-config-cluster, ccs_tool etc. to stop us
starting a cluster with too big a name.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHCS cluster on RHEL4U1
1) Patrick Caulfield has enforced "cman_tool join" to sanity checks the cluster
name (code into cvs already).
2) The bugzilla was cloned to ask "system-config-cluster" sanity check the
cluster name length.
Fixed in 1.0.17-1.0
