Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 834289
Can't activate a host while another host in contending
Last modified: 2016-02-10 14:24:11 EST
Description of problem:
When a Host is contending for SPM role, any attempt to activate another hosts fails and goes to non operational
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Place all the hosts into maintenance
2. Activate a hosts (let's call it hosts A)
3. Wait until it's status change to contending
4. Activate another host (let's cal it host B)
Host B becomes non operational with a message saying that the connection to storage failed
Host activation is successful
This is critical in power failure recovery scenario. Assume that power fails and then returns. All the system starts at once.
If all the hosts woke up before RHEV Manager all is fine, if not then the first host that RHEV Manager detects starts contenting. All the other hosts the wake up during this time are moved to non operational, leaving the system with only part of the hosts active after power failure.
This what happened to me on my setup.
Version latest from RHN (3.0.4/3.0.3 for engine)
