I have a 2 node setup (with quorum disk), redhat 6.5 & a luci mgmt console.
Everything has been configured and were doing failover tests now.
Couple of questions I have :
· When I simulate a complete power failure of a servers pdus (no
more access to idrac fencing or APC PDU fencing) I can see that the fencing
of that node who was running the application fails ß I noticed unless
fencing returns an OK Im stuck and my application wont start on my 2nd
node. Which is ok I guess, because no fencing could mean there is still I/O
on my san.
Clustat also shows on the active node that the 1st node is still running the
How can I intervene manually, so as to force a start of the application on
the node that is still alive ?
Is there a way to tell the cluster, dont take into account node 1 anymore
and dont try to fence anymore, just start the application on the node that
is still ok ?
I cant possibly wait until power returns to that server. Downtime could be
· If I tell a node to leave the cluster in Luci, I would like it to
remain a non-cluster member after the reboot of that node. It rejoins the
cluster automatically after a reboot. Any way to prevent this ?
