This Readme identifies known issues for Novell Business Continuity Clustering (BCC) 1.2.2 for your Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) 2 Support Pack 3 (SP3) for Linux servers that are running Novell Cluster Services 1.8.8.
Novell Business Continuity Clustering 1.2.2 is available through Novell Customer Care or from sales offices. It is not available on the Novell Downloads Web site. An ISO file is available for 32-bit or 64-bit OES 2 SP3 Linux architectures.
In addition, you must download the following products:
Identity Manager 3.6.1 Bundle Edition (available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions)
The credential that you need in order to use Identity Manager drivers beyond the evaluation period is found in the BCC license.
Apply all maintenance patches for Identity Manager on the IDM node in each of the peer clusters before installing or upgrading BCC 1.2.2. The IDM 3.6.1 Engine Patch 3 Build 3.6.14 or later version is required.
When you upgrade from OES 2 SP2 to OES 2 SP3, you must also apply the IDM 3.6.1 OES 2 SP3 Compatibility Patch 1 (TID #5090210) to the IDM node in each of the peer clusters before you upgrade the operating system to OES 2 SP3 on any of the nodes in the peer clusters.
Apply the latest OES 2 SP3 maintenance patches on all nodes in every peer cluster before you install or upgrade BCC on any of the nodes.
The Clusters plug-in and other storage-related plug-ins for iManager 2.7.4 that are delivered with the OES 2 SP3 Linux release. Apply the latest OES 2 SP3 patches for these plug-ins.
This section identifies known issues for BCC 1.2.2 for OES 3 SP3 Linux.
In the BCC 1.2.2 for Linux release, multiple-tree configurations of business continuity clusters are not supported. All peer clusters must reside in the same tree.
If a given BCC-enabled resource is disabled for BCC from multiple peer clusters, and is then BCC-enabled from one or more peer clusters, the resource can come online as primary in multiple clusters.
If a resource is seen as primary in a peer cluster where you know it should actually be seen as secondary, execute the cluster resetresources command to force it to reset the status to its proper state.
IMPORTANT:This command changes the state of all resources on this peer cluster to offline and secondary.
