7.34. ctdb

Updated ctdb packages that fix various bugs and are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The ctdb packages provide a clustered database based on Samba's Trivial Database (TDB) used to store temporary data.


The ctbd packages have been upgraded to upstream version, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version. (BZ#838885)

Bug Fixes

While running ctdb on the GFS2 file system, ctdb could ban a stable node when another node was started or stopped. This bug has been fixed by the rebase and stable nodes get no longer banned in the described scenario.
Previously, on the Glusterfs file system, the ctdb lock file and configuration files were shared. Consequently, the ctdbd daemon running on a node terminated unexpectedly when another node in the cluster was brought down. This bug has been fixed by the rebase and ctdbd no longer crashes in the described scenario.
After removing a ctdb node, the "ctdb status" command reported the same number of nodes as before the node was removed. A patch has been provided to address this issue and "ctdb status" now returns an accurate number of nodes after a remove operation.
Users of ctdb are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
