If a resource’s CSM container does not have a segment manager, it contains a single volume, and the CSMPORT utility automatically converts the volume to a compatibility volume and deports the CSM container. If a resource’s CSM container has a segment manager on it, you must manually convert the Linux POSIX volumes in the container to compatibility volumes, and then deport the container by using the EVMS GUI. Special handling is also required to convert the scripts for CSM resources with a segment manager on them.
IMPORTANT:A CSM container must have its volumes converted and be deported in order to work in compatibility mode on OES 11 SP1 nodes.
Having a segment manager on the CSM container is not a typical configuration. In an OES 2 cluster, you might have added a segment manager on a CSM container in order to be able to create multiple volumes in the container as described in OES 2 SP3: Novell Cluster Services 1.8.8 Administration Guide for Linux.
Check each of the CSM containers to determine if it contains a segment manager, and if it does, how many volumes it contains. If a resource’s CSM container contains a segment manager, convert the container’s volumes to compatibility volumes, then deport the container. If a resource’s CSM container does not contain a segment manager, continue with Section 14.4, Modifying the Scripts for CSM Resources without a Segment Manager.
Before you add OES 11 SP1 nodes to an OES 2 SP3 cluster, perform the following for each CSM cluster resource:
Log in as the root user on the OES 2 SP3 server in the cluster where the Linux POSIX volume cluster resource is online, then open a terminal console.
If the resource is offline, log in to an OES 2 SP3 node in the resource’slist, then bring the resource online by entering
cluster online <resource_name>
Launch the EVMSGUI utility by entering
Check to see if the CSM container has a segment manager on it, then do one of the following:
If the CSM container has a segment manager, determine which volumes are on it, then continue with the next step.
If a resource’s CSM container does not have a segment manager, it has only a single volume and it is not necessary to convert the volume or deport the container. Continue with Section 14.4, Modifying the Scripts for CSM Resources without a Segment Manager.
Convert each volume in the CSM container to a compatibility volume:
Modify the CSM container’s properties to set its type to:
Right-click the container and select.
Select the container, then click.
Selectand change it to .
Click, then click to confirm the change.
Clickto save the container type change.
Repeat the previous steps for each CSM resource in the OES 2 SP3 cluster that manages a clustered Linux POSIX volume.
