Updated cluster and gfs2-utils packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Extended Update Support.
The Red Hat Cluster Manager is a collection of technologies working together to provide data integrity and the ability to maintain application availability in the event of a failure. Using redundant hardware, shared disk storage, power management, and robust cluster communication and application failover mechanisms, a cluster can meet the needs of the enterprise market.
- Previously, the cman init script did not handle its lock file correctly. During a node reboot, this could have caused the node itself to be evicted from the cluster by other members. With this update, the cman init script now handles the lock file correctly, and no fencing action is taken by other nodes of the cluster.
Users of cluster and gfs2-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
