Stopping a service with an fs, clusterfs or netfs resource that is a child of a script fails in RHEL 5 or 6

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • When I stop my service, it fails
Jan 19 10:18:45 node1 clurgmgrd: [8135]: <err> 'umount /local/home/' failed, error=0 
Jan 19 10:18:45 node1 clurgmgrd[8135]: <notice> stop on clusterfs "volGFS01-lvol0" returned 2 (invalid argument(s))
  • Stopping of a fs or clusterfs resource fails due to it still being in use by a parent resource


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 or 6 with the High Availability or Resilient Storage Add On
  • One or more services in /etc/cluster/cluster.conf where a fs, clusterfs, or netfs resource is a child (directly or indirectly) of another resource that uses that file system. For example:
<service name="example" recovery="relocate">
   <script name="test-script" file="/data/">
      <fs device="/dev/vg/lv" mountpoint="/data/" fsid="1234" fstype="ext3"/>

In this example, the script resource directly uses the fs resource that it is a parent of.
