Unable to create a clustered Linux volume
This document (7009516) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
Novell Open Enterprise Server 11 (OES 11) Linux
NSSMU - Error 23384: Device "/dev/sde" is not shared by clvm
CLVMD process does not load during cluster initialization.
Failed to get my node id.
Update the nodename file by using the following command: "echo -n "$HOSTNAME" > /etc/opt/novell/ncs/nodename"
Restart clustering services. (rcnovell-ncs stop / start)
Important: All nodes in the cluster need to have /usr/sbin/clvmd process running. If one node in the cluster has a problem it will affect your ability to create any clustered linux volumes.
Fix: Fixed in novell-cluster-services-kmp-default RPM.
OES11SP1 and in September 2012 OES11 Maintenance update patch (oes11-September-2012-Scheduled-Maintenance)
Using (/usr/bin/vi) VI editor to edit this file will add a carriage return after the $HOSTNAME which will cause this problem.
Example: ps -eaf | grep clvmd
/var/log/messages shows this after novell-ncs startup script has run.
clvmd: CLVMD started
clvmd: Entering _init_cluster.
clvmd: _init_cluster: ncs_fd = 7.
clvmd: _init_cluster: Failed to get my node id.
clvmd: Can't initialise cluster interface
Turn on debug mode for clvmd.
Run the following command "/usr/sbin/clvmd -d" and then check output in /var/log/messages.
May increase the verbosity level if needed. "/usr/sbin/clvmd -d2"
