I am still battling this.  I stopped the cluster completely, modified
the config and then started it, but that didn't work either.  Same
issue.  I noticed clurgmgrd wasn't staying running so I then tried

[root at omadvnfs01c ~]# clurgmgrd -d -f
[7014] notice: Waiting for CMAN to start

Then in another window I issued:
[root at omadvnfs01c ~]# cman_tool join

Then back in the other window below "[7014] notice: Waiting for CMAN
to start", I got:
failed acquiring lockspace: Transport endpoint is not connected
Locks not working!

Anyone know what could be going on?
