Drop heartbeat support for haresources-based clusters
Last modified: 2012-07-17 00:50:28 EDT
Bug #576608 prevented heartbeat from starting up in v1 mode and yet went unnoticed in fedora and upstream for a number of months.
From this, I think its reasonable to conclude that there are very few new v1 clusters being built.
Also, talking to LINBIT, the upstream maintainers, they tell me that "the only support [for v1] you'll get is for upgrading [to heartbeat+pacemaker]".
They have also made it clear that v1 is not being developed at all (and hasn't been for the last 4 years or so).
I therefore propose we drop support for haresources-based clusters as of F-14.
I kinda like haresources, nice and simple. ;)
However, given that upstream does not support it anymore, I'm fine with dropping it in f14.
No need for xml anymore, we have a nice shell tool to hide all that.
So here's a typical haresources entry:
linuxha1 IPaddr::192.168.85.3 httpd smb
Here's the same in shell syntax:
primitive IP ocf:heartbeat:IPaddr params ip="192.168.85.3"
primitive http lsb:httpd
primitive samba lsb:smb
group v1-group IP http samba
location prefer-ha1 v1-group 5000: linuxha1
See, not so scary anymore :-)
This might also be interesting reading:
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
