9.4.2. Starting and Verifying your Configuration

Perform the following to start and verify your configuration:
  1. Start CTDB service using the following command:
    # service ctdb start
  2. When CTDB starts it will start Samba automatically. To avoid Samba from starting automatically on reboot, run the following command:
    # chkconfig smb off
  3. Verify that CTDB is running using the following command:
    # ctdb status
    # ctdb ip
    # ctdb ping -n all
  4. Mount a Red Hat Storage volume using any one of the VIPs.
    When you shutdown the Red Hat Storage Server serving the VIP (run ctdb ip command to find the physical server serving the VIP), there will be a pause for few seconds and then I/O will resume.
