- Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 5 (with the High Availability and Resilient Storage Add Ons)
/etc/cluster/cluster.conffile with a clustered service with the following attribute
nfslock="1"option in cluster service results in many
/tmp/statd-xxxxxxxfiles that do not get removed
These files are harmless and can be ignored. If they need to be removed, it is recommended they are only removed while the service is not running on that node. This issue is fixed in rgmanager-2.0.52-9.el5 or higher version.
The problem is if we drop into any of the 3
if statements at the beginning of the
/usr/share/cluster/svclib_nfslock:nfslock_statd_notify() function, we return without removing
If we change to
nfslock="0" or remove this option then there is no file(s) created.
