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.

Note

The ctbd packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.0.114.5, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version. (BZ#838885)

Bug Fixes

BZ#758367
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.
BZ#821715
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.
BZ#866670
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.
