I have 2 nodes HA cluster configuration. Both nodes are connected to
shared storage. Is it critical that nodes will not mount the same
LUN at the same time. That is why I am using STONITH for node
fencing. My STONITH is based on IPMI device.
I am considering scenario that IPMI device on node that need to be
power down fails:
Sep 27 13:10:12 storage09 heartbeat: : ERROR: STONITH device
external/ipmi not operational!
Sep 27 13:10:12 storage09 heartbeat: : WARN: Exiting STONITH-
stat process 17161 returned rc 1.
Sep 27 13:10:12 storage09 heartbeat: : ERROR: STONITH status
Sep 27 13:10:12 storage09 heartbeat: : info: This may mean that
the STONITH device has failed!
Is there a way to configure STONITH in such a way that if status of
the device exit with code 1 then it will for example stop heartbeat
and wait for administrator intervention?
