An nfsserver resource's start operation times out when moving back to its original node in a Pacemaker cluster

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • I moved a resource group containing an nfsserver resource and an exportfs resource from node A to node B and back to node A. When it moved back to node A, its start operation timed out.
[root@fastvm-rhel-8-0-23 ~]# pcs resource status
  * Resource Group: nfsgroup:
    * vg    (ocf::heartbeat:LVM-activate):   Started node2
    * fs    (ocf::heartbeat:Filesystem):     Started node2
    * share_fs  (ocf::heartbeat:Filesystem):     Started node2
    * nfsdaemon (ocf::heartbeat:nfsserver):  Stopped
    * export    (ocf::heartbeat:exportfs):   Stopped
    * vip   (ocf::heartbeat:IPaddr2):    Stopped

Failed Resource Actions:
  * nfsdaemon_start_0 on node2 'error' (1): call=59, status='Timed Out', exitreason='', last-rc-change='2021-06-14 22:56:08 -07:00', queued=0ms, exec=5002ms
