Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 239276
System-config-cluster does not update cluster name/alias properly
Last modified: 2009-04-16 16:12:26 EDT
Description of problem:
The default name for new clusters in system-config-cluster is "alpha_cluster".
If the user changes the cluster name together with other parameters and
attributes, the cluster will NOT work because of naming problems. However if you
create a new cluster and immediately save, close and reopen it before doing any
changes, it seems to work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #210733 +++
If the cluster has already been created, the name cannot be changed without
tearing down the cluster and starting over. This is why the cluster alias is
available. Truly, the actual name of the cluster is of little importance to the
running cluster. Only when creating a GFS share is the true name used.
System-config-cluster does not create a cluster. It can only create a new
cluster.conf file, and edit a conf file for a running cluster. Conga can be used
to create clusters.
In the above description, when saving, closing, and reopening...the conf file is
not being actually propogated.
