I've just downloaded OpenSSI 1.9.2 for Fedora Core 3 and am testing it out.
My init node has two network interfaces, but the other nodes only have a
cluster interconnect. I've setup CVIP NAT to give them network access.
My big problem is that I can't get autofs4 to work. All the home
directories are automounted, so changing to a user's home directory should
cause autofs to mount the mount point across the cluster. (Or at least
that's what I'd like to have happen.)
Right now when I do that, I get this output:
$ cd /home/user
RNFS_NOTIFY error -2 on node 2
-bash: cd: /home/user: no such file or directory
(That's from node 1, if I'm on node 2, it says "error -2 on node 1" instead.)
While that behavior isn't ideal, it's a big improvement over OpenSSI 1.9.1
and the unofficial FC3 1.9.2 rpm from December which both crashed when you
I can mount these directories by hand and they work fine on the cluster.
I also have a few static NFS mounts in /etc/fstab that are mounted on all
of the cluster machines. It's just the autofs mounts that are failing.
The automounting documentation on openssi.org seems to indicate that I
could use amd instead of autofs4, but the document says that all my
cluster nodes need to have a network interface with direct access to the
NFS server (ie: no CVIP setups). That won't work for my needs.
I've tried starting autofs by hand on the other nodes, but that doesn't work.
Does anyone know what I need to do to get autofs working on the cluster,
or is the autofs kernel module not yet OpenSSI-compatible?
