Add ability to set cluster_id in conga
Last modified: 2009-04-16 18:55:05 EDT
It might be nice to let users specify the cluster ID in Conga. This parameter is
an attribute of the cman element in cluster.conf. Example:
This attribute is completely optional. If it is not explicitly defined, cman
will generate one based on the cluster name. However, when using scsi
reservations as a fence method, it is *recommended* that you explicity define a
unique cluster ID. The reason is that this value is used to generate unique scsi
reservation keys. By combining cluster ID and node ID we can generate a unique
reservation key for each node.
cluster_id (in C) is a 16-bit value, if that matters. So its max value would be
65535 (0xFFFF hex), in case Conga does any range checks.
What happens if the cluster is already running, and a user happens upon this
form field, and decides they want to put their phone number in the cluster ID
field for fun...will suddenly changing the cluster ID param in the conf file
Yes. Just like changing your node IDs would break your scsi reservation keys.
Changing either your cluster ID or node IDs while you have existing
reservations/registrations is a bad idea.
