Comment 1 Lon Hohberger 2007-05-07 18:27:04 UTC

If you boot a non-xen kernel w/ fence_xvmd, enabled in the cluster config, the
script returns a failure.

Comment 2 Lon Hohberger 2007-05-10 14:51:00 UTC
This isn't actually correct.

If you:

* Install a RHEL5 guest with advanced platform,
* Enable xend (chkconfig --level 2345 xend on)
* Install the current RHEL5 cluster errat for cman, and
* boot a kernel without Xen support,

...the cman init script chokes and will not start cman.  This is actually not
related to fence_xvmd as originally thought.

This is consistent with the operational specification of how fence_xvmd is
started: failing to start fence_xvmd does not cause a failure of other parts of
the infrastructure.

This patch should fix the problem. I've applied it to the HEAD and RHEL5
