Description Fabio Massimo Di Nitto 2012-07-11 10:50:29 UTC
3 values that are generated at startup time (cluster_id, two_node, nodename) are not correctly re-instated in the objdb on config reload.

start cluster
corosync-objctl |grep cman


increase version in cluster.conf, reload

the same command will show no output.

In the reload path, via code review, there is also a corner case where we can leak a tiny amount of memory if config reload fails. This is not easy to trigger or test. devel review required for the fix.

After patching, corosync-objctl will show the items as expected.
