Description Nils Philippsen 2006-10-12 10:42:07 EDT
Description of problem:
SSIA, instead of what is specified in /etc/cluster/cluster.conf, "clusvcadm -e
<service>" starts <service> on the local node.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. "clusvcadm -e <service>"
Actual results:
<service> gets started on local node

Expected results:
<service> should be started on a node in the cluster that satisfies constraints
specified in cluster.conf, e.g. priority.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Lon Hohberger 2006-10-17 10:23:36 EDT
Expected behavior.  Use the -n <nodename> flag.  You can use clusvcadm to
explicitly start the service where you want, otherwise, the assumption is that
the service should be started locally.

The failover domain priority is used for cluster-induced service transitions
(which happen after node transitions), and is not used for user-induced
enable/disable requests.

It may be possible to add a flag to clusvcadm to do this (for 'use failover
domain priority, if possible') in a future release, but the current behavior is
not a bug.

However, the basic behavior for '-e' is correct.

Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2006-10-17 11:44:58 EDT
This should be mentioned in "clusvcadm --help" somewhere, the people I've
encountered seem to expect "clusvcadm" to respect the constraints in
cluster.conf when using "-e". Should I open a new BZ item for an RFE?
Comment 3 Lon Hohberger 2006-10-18 12:00:26 EDT
Yes, please do.
Comment 4 Lon Hohberger 2006-10-18 12:01:13 EDT
Or we can use this one... *shrug*

Implements behavior

clusvcadm -Fe <service>
Comment 6 Lon Hohberger 2007-01-04 10:48:31 EST
Tested with a service with an ordered failover domain; worked for me.  This
option can not be used with the -[nm] flag.
