Description Herbert L. Plankl 2007-08-22 06:05:17 EDT
Description of problem:
Hello! I'm not sure, if I'm doinig something wrong or if it's really a bug. My
Im testing in vmware the new RHEL5 cluster suite and have installed the newest
cluster-rpms (cman-2.0.70-1.el5 rgmanager-2.0.28-1.el5 lvm2-2.02.26-2.el5
luci-0.10.0-2.el5 ricci-0.10.0-2.el5). My setup is
* 2-node-cluster
* quorum-disk
* heuristic just for testing [ -f /tmp/has_qu ] -> this file exists on both nodes

I've created a quorum-disk on a shared disk (vmware) using mkqdisk. mkqdisk -L
shows this disk on both nodes. But every time I start qdiskd, the node reboots. 

The last messages are:

clustat shows the following:
Member Status: Quorate

  Member Name                        ID   Status
  ------ ----                        ---- ------

  rhel5n2.icoserve.test                 2 Online, Local, rgmanager
  /dev/sdd                              0 Offline, Quorum Disk

  Service Name         Owner (Last)                   State

  service:testscript1  rhel5n1.icoserve.test          started
  service:testscript2  rhel5n2.icoserve.test          started

My quorum-conf was:
        <quorumd interval="10" tko="10" votes="1" device="/dev/sdd"
            <heuristic program="[ -f /tmp/has_qu ]" score="10" interval="5"/>

The votes:
<cman expected_votes="2" two_node="0"/>

Output of qdisk status-file:
On node 1:
Time Stamp: Wed Aug 22 11:26:56 2007
Node ID: 1
Score: 10/10 (Minimum required = 10)
Current state: Master
Initializing Set: { }
Visible Set: { 1 2 }
Master Node ID: 1
Quorate Set: { 2 3 }

On node 2:
Time Stamp: Wed Aug 22 11:26:47 2007
Node ID: 2
Score: 10/10 (Minimum required = 10)
Current state: Running
Initializing Set: { }
Visible Set: { 1 2 }
Master Node ID: 1
Quorate Set: { 2 3 }

I'm using the same vmware-disks for 2 shared gfs-partitions. This works fine, so
I dont't think the problem depends on use of vmware-disks.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL5 U0 + Updates of cluster-rpms

How reproducible:
* 2-Node-cluster + 1 quorum disk
* start cman, clvmd, (rgmanager - same behavior)
-> everything ok
* start qdiskd
-> start ok
* after some time, qdiskd is "assuming master role"
* Reboot (groupd_dispatch error -1 errno 11)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up cluster with 2 nodes, expected_votes=2, two_node=0
2. set up quorum disk
3. start cman, clvmd, qdiskd
Actual results:
Reboot after "Assuming master role"

Expected results:
qdisk online and working

Additional info:
Tests were done in VMware-GSX with use of shared virtual disks. Bootparams are
"clocksource=pit nosmp noapic noalpic" to workaround a rtc-bug. Date is synchron
on both nodes.
Comment 1 Lon Hohberger 2007-08-22 13:25:38 EDT
Visible Set: { 1 2 }
Master Node ID: 1
Quorate Set: { 2 3 }

This is strange; are your nodeids 1 and 2 in cluster.conf?

(it shouldn't matter that they were virtual machines nor that you were using
virtual disks)
Comment 2 Herbert L. Plankl 2007-08-22 14:01:05 EDT
yes they are. I've set up the cluster using system-config-cluster, which btw.
has a bug too: in the Managementtab it does not show the cluster-members but it
shows the services correctly. Maybe this problem is related to the nodeids.
What's strange about the nodeids? I guess they should be "0" and "1"? If the
quorum joins the cluster (it is offline), clustat -x says the nodeid of the
quorumdisk is "0".
I'll try it with nodeid "0" and "1" and will report the results here..

Comment 3 Herbert L. Plankl 2007-08-22 14:39:11 EDT
I've stopped the cluster, vim-ed the config and changed nodeid of node 1 to "0"
and node 2 to "1". Then I scp-ed the cluster.conf to the other node and tried to
start cman. Thats the output:

[root@rhel5n2 ~]# /etc/init.d/cman start
Starting cluster: 
   Loading modules... done
   Mounting configfs... done
   Starting ccsd... done
   Starting cman... failed
cman not started: No node ID for rhel5n1.icoserve.test, run 'ccs_tool
addnodeids' to fix /usr/sbin/cman_tool: aisexec daemon didn't start

The cluster.conf is changed after this failed start: Version is <version + 1>
and the nodeids are
* Node 1 has "2"
* Node 2 has "1"

I think, ccs-daemon did this changes - but cman does not start although.. I have
to set node 1's id to "1" and node 2's id to "2" to get cman running..
Comment 4 Lon Hohberger 2007-09-12 14:18:23 EDT
For what it's worth, you can't use node ID = 0 for nodes.  The visible set
should be nodes {1 2} after they get up and running; qdiskd shouldn't display
node 0 in the quorate set.

It could be that the quorate set output is backwards, but I doubt that.  I'll
look more into it.

Are you using multipath / LVM / etc for qdisk?
Comment 5 Herbert L. Plankl 2007-09-13 02:33:08 EDT
I'm using VMware-Workstation. And so the disks are virtual disks connected to
both nodes. They are raw - no LVM, no Multipath-Fibrechannel. GFS works fine on
this setting and RedHat cluster 3 with quorum-disk works too (So I don't think
the problem is related to the fact that they are virtual disks)

Here is the disk setting for both virtual machines:
disk.locking = "FALSE"
scsi1.sharedBus = "virtual"
scsi1.virtualDev = "lsilogic"
scsi1.present = "TRUE"
scsi1:0.deviceType = "disk"
scsi1:0.writeThrough = "TRUE"
scsi1:0.present = "TRUE"
scsi1:0.fileName = "/opt/vmware/machines/vmrhel3_san/qu01.vmdk"
scsi1:0.mode = "independent-persistent"
scsi1:1.deviceType = "disk"
scsi1:1.writeThrough = "TRUE"
scsi1:1.present = "TRUE"
scsi1:1.fileName = "/opt/vmware/machines/vmrhel3_san/qu02.vmdk"
scsi1:1.mode = "independent-persistent"
Comment 6 Lon Hohberger 2007-09-24 16:22:00 EDT
Ah, so cman / aisexec probably crashed on activation?
Comment 9 Herbert L. Plankl 2007-09-25 04:42:20 EDT
yes, it seems so
Comment 10 Lon Hohberger 2007-11-13 12:30:21 EST
Herbert, I'm pretty sure this is fixed in 5.1 - there are two bugs related to
cman qdisk interaction which were fixed:

(1) device names could only be 15 characters (you were using /dev/sdd, so this
probably isn't the problem)
(2) timer logic bug in openais caused cman/openais to die when qdiskd advertised

Could you retest with the 5.1 cman + ccs packages and let me know if it's not
fixed?  It should be.  If it is fixed, could you close this bug? 
Comment 11 Herbert L. Plankl 2007-11-15 07:50:56 EST
Sounds good - where can I find this packages? In RHN the latest versions are:
cman-2.0.73-1.el5_1.1.i386   	 Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 for 32-bit x86)
rgmanager-2.0.31-1.el5.i386   	 RHEL Clustering (v. 5 for 32-bit x86)

With this versions the problem is not solved - cman died a few minutes after
starting qdiskd.
Comment 12 Lon Hohberger 2007-11-15 12:06:50 EST
You also need the openais-0.80.3-7.el5 if you don't already have it.  If you do,
then this is a new bug - and it seems specific to your configuration (VMWare).
Comment 13 Herbert L. Plankl 2007-11-16 07:45:10 EST
Yum-ed up to RHEL5.1 and tested again -> now its working, qdisk is online and
seems to be working.
Thank You!

(I cannot close the bug - bugzilla says, only owner can do that..)
