Description Marcel Holtmann 2007-06-27 09:25:12 EDT
Opening a tcp connection from a cluster member to another cluster member
targeting the dlm port it is enough to stop every dlm operation in the cluster.
This means that GFS and rgmanager will hangs.

1. telnet from a member of the cluster to another member of the cluster
targeting port 21064
2. Try to write to a mounted gfs filesystem

The write operation hangs and every following operation (read or write) on the
GFS filesystem on every node hangs.

Every service that use DLM seems to stop working. Rgmanager stop to works with a
"Unable to obtain cluster lock: Connection timed out" error message.

Even a zero data connection, like a TCP port scan is enough to stop DLM
operations on the whole cluster
