Redhat 5 cluster: quorum disk configuration

Posted in Redhat Cluster at 11:28 am by alessiodini

For recovery purpose , yesterday I made and configured a quorum disk on a two nodes Redhat 5.5 cluster.
I had some issue when I would make it visibile to the cluster.
I tried to use system-config-cluster GUI command , but I saw that it was possible configure a new quorum disk ONLY at “new configuration” time.
So , i tried setting up CONGA and adding the cluster nodes, but this failed too because I had one node offline.
At this time i tought about to make a new configuration on my vmware-test-environment and manually adding the entries but i preferred to recover a node, making it cluster aware available and finally using CONGA!

For everyone: REMEMBER TO start the qdiskd service and put it bootable via chkconfig. Also REMEMEBER to check the heuristic min_score parameter value
