Description Thomas Pek 2007-10-15 00:15:22 EDT
Description of problem:
When using bonding, the ip.sh script only works with slave interfaces which
start with eth*. It fails to get status on other bonded interfaces, like
for example Infiniband (ib*).

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

Could you give me 'ip addr list' for a bonded infiniband configuration?
Comment 2 Thomas Pek 2007-11-11 22:06:46 EST
We have decided to run without ib bonding so I can't send you the
requested output.  

The problem seems to be with the /usr/share/cluster/ip.sh script
in the findSlaves() function. It only recognizes eth* devices:

 while read line; do
                set - $line
                while [ $# -gt 0 ]; do
                        case $1 in
                                interfaces="${1/:/} $interfaces"
                                continue 2
        done < <( /sbin/ip link list | grep "master $mastif" )

Our original configuration had a master device bond1 and 2 slave 
devices ib0 and ib1.

That's the part I thought was suspect too.

Comment 4 Kiersten (Kerri) Anderson 2007-11-19 14:57:32 EST
All cluster version 5 defects should be reported under red hat enterprise linux
5 product name - not cluster suite.

Use position rather than pattern-match for slave devices.
Comment 6 Lon Hohberger 2008-03-04 18:13:15 EST
Note that link detection won't work on non-ethernet devices anyway, so I'm not
sure how much this patch would help.
Comment 7 Lon Hohberger 2008-03-11 13:15:21 EDT
interfaces=$(/sbin/ip link list | grep "master $mastif" | awk '{print $2}'})      

should obviate the need for the loop entirely.
