Sorry if this reply is a repeat.  I sent a reply to this post when my mail client
was foolishly not set for plaintext emails only.  As far as I can tell the list
manager has stripped it, but it could just be slow.  Apologies again if that's
the case.



Your issue is likely not to be cluster related, but a problem with routing or
name resolution.

Please send the outputs of the following commands to me privately (not replied to
the list) so I can assist:

cat /etc/nsswitch.conf
netstat -rn
ip rule show
ip route show
cat /etc/hosts
cat /etc/resolv.conf
nslookup ricci1b.gallup.com
nslookup ricci2b.gallup.com
nslookup ricci1b-ic.gallup.com
nslookup ricci2b-ic.gallup.com
ifconfig -a
Any configs that relate to how eth1 and eth2 are bonded.

Also, not that I think it makes a difference, but is *not* a part of
the IANA reserved address space for private use (if that's what you were
intending).  For further info, please read section 3 of RFC 1918 at
http://www.isi.edu/in-notes/rfc1918.txt.  I doubt this would relate to your
problem, however.

Does anyone know how to get the cluster to use an alternate private network for
clustering?  I have 2 nodes RHEL 5.3

Eth0 is the public interface

Eth1 and eth2 are bonded

I added entries for the bonded interface in both hosts file.  Here is my hosts file  ricci1b         ricci1b.gallup.com  ricci2b         ricci2b.gallup.com     ricci1b-ic      ricci1b-ic.gallup.com     ricci2b-ic      ricci2b-ic.gallup.com


Here is my cluster.conf

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<cluster alias="xencluster" config_version="1" name="xencluster">

        <fence_daemon post_fail_delay="0" post_join_delay="3"/>


                <clusternode name="ricci2b-ic.gallup.com" nodeid="1" votes="1"/>

                <clusternode name="ricci1b-ic.gallup.com" nodeid="2" votes="1"/>


        <cman expected_votes="1" two_node="1"/>





I get this error in my log file


Feb 12 11:34:27 ricci1b openais[6353]: [MAIN ] local node name
"ricci1b.gallup.com" not found in cluster.conf
