Chapter 6. Managing Red Hat Cluster With system-config-cluster

This chapter describes various administrative tasks for managing a Red Hat Cluster and consists of the following sections:

6.1. Starting and Stopping the Cluster Software

To start the cluster software on a member, type the following commands in this order:
  1. service ccsd start
  2. service cman start (or service lock_gulmd start for GULM clusters)
  3. service fenced start (DLM clusters only)
  4. service clvmd start, if CLVM has been used to create clustered volumes
  5. service gfs start, if you are using Red Hat GFS
  6. service rgmanager start, if the cluster is running high-availability services (rgmanager)
To stop the cluster software on a member, type the following commands in this order:
  1. service rgmanager stop, if the cluster is running high-availability services (rgmanager)
  2. service gfs stop, if you are using Red Hat GFS
  3. service clvmd stop, if CLVM has been used to create clustered volumes
  4. service fenced stop (DLM clusters only)
  5. service cman stop (or service lock_gulmd stop for GULM clusters)
  6. service ccsd stop
Stopping the cluster services on a member causes its services to fail over to an active member.
