Description Brian Likosar 2009-03-05 11:38:39 EST
Description of problem:
Rules given as an example in Section 2.2.3 of Cluster Administration Guide Cluster_Administration(EN)-5 (2008-12-12T10:53) are incorrect and do not work as documented.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Cluster_Administration(EN)-5 (2008-12-12T10:53)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Follow Cluster Administration Guide up to step 2.2.3 but do not disable built-in firewall (iptables)
2.  Using examples in 2.2.3, apply firewall exceptions as documented

Actual results:
Cluster will not start, all nodes report unable to connect on provided ports

Expected results:
Cluster should start and communicate via appropriate ports while leaving iptables enforcing other network restrictions

Additional info:
Suggested fix is to remove the "-i IP addr" portion, which is a valid command (does not error after entering), but also does not allow packets to pass through.

Examples have been removed for the RHEL 5.4 release. Updated documentation will be published with the RHEL 5.4 release, which will serve as documentation for all versions of this product under RHEL 5.
