Description Corey Marthaler 2007-08-17 18:43:21 EDT
Description of problem:
This may be an issue with rgmanger. 

I defined a nfs cluster service consisting of two gfs filesystems. I created
both gfs resources with invalid devices and then attempted to start those
services. The service failed to start, as expected, with the error about not
being able to match a device to what's in the fs resource defination. 

I then corrected the mistake using conga, updated the cluster, and verified that
the .conf file was correct on all nodes. From here, I was unable to successfully
restart the service. Everytime I tried, it remained in the failed state. I then
attemped to restart rgmanager by hand and that worked. I then reloaded luci and
all was happy. 

So why wasn't conga able to start that service without manual intervention? If I
had used conga's big hammer and restarted the whole entire cluster, it would
have probably worked, but an entire cluster restart shouldn't be necessary.

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

To clarify, when you say you restarted rgmanager, do you mean you did a 'service
rgmanager restart' or did you start it with rgmanager (i.e., clusvcadm -e svcname)?
Comment 3 Corey Marthaler 2007-08-20 09:46:32 EDT
I restarted it with 'service rgmanager restart'.
Comment 4 Ryan McCabe 2007-08-20 11:13:36 EDT
This is a conga bug. Lon says failed services need to be explicitly disabled
before being started again. Patch to be checked in shortly.
Comment 6 Corey Marthaler 2007-08-22 12:03:28 EDT
fix verified in 0.10.0-5.el5.
