To update the configuration using the
scp command, perform the following steps:
At any node in the cluster, edit the
config_version attribute by incrementing its value (for example, changing from
Validate the updated file against the cluster schema (
cluster.rng) by running the
ccs_config_validate command. For example:
If the updated file is valid, use the
scp command to propagate it to
/etc/cluster/ in each cluster node.
Verify that the updated configuration file has been propagated.
To reload the new configuration, execute the following command on one of the cluster nodes:
cman_tool version -r
If you do not have
ricci installed, you can use the following command:
cman_tool version -s
You may skip this step (restarting cluster software) if you have made only the following configuration changes:
Deleting a node from the cluster configuration—except
where the node count changes from greater than two nodes to two nodes. For information about deleting a node from a cluster and transitioning from greater than two nodes to two nodes, see Section 9.2, “Deleting or Adding a Node”
Adding a node to the cluster configuration—except
where the node count changes from two nodes to greater than two nodes. For information about adding a node to a cluster and transitioning from two nodes to greater than two nodes, see Section 9.2.2, “Adding a Node to a Cluster”
Changes to how daemons log information.
HA service/VM maintenance (adding, editing, or deleting).
Resource maintenance (adding, editing, or deleting).
Failover domain maintenance (adding, editing, or deleting).
Otherwise, you must restart the cluster software as follows:
Stopping and starting the cluster software ensures that any configuration changes that are checked only at startup time are included in the running configuration.
Verify that that the nodes are functioning as members in the cluster and that the HA services are running as expected.
At any cluster node, run
cman_tool nodes to verify that the nodes are functioning as members in the cluster (signified as "M" in the status column, "Sts"). For example:
Node Sts Inc Joined Name
1 M 548 2010-09-28 10:52:21 node-01.example.com
2 M 548 2010-09-28 10:52:21 node-02.example.com
3 M 544 2010-09-28 10:52:21 node-03.example.com
At any node, using the
clustat utility, verify that the HA services are running as expected. In addition,
clustat displays status of the cluster nodes. For example:
Cluster Status for mycluster @ Wed Nov 17 05:40:00 2010
Member Status: Quorate
Member Name ID Status
------ ---- ---- ------
node-03.example.com 3 Online, rgmanager
node-02.example.com 2 Online, rgmanager
node-01.example.com 1 Online, Local, rgmanager
Service Name Owner (Last) State
------- ---- ----- ------ -----
service:example_apache node-01.example.com started
service:example_apache2 (none) disabled
If the cluster is running as expected, you are done updating the configuration.
