After wrestling with OpenSSI for several days, I have come up with a
1. root partition on a meta device?
Is it possible to get OpenSSI to work with / being mounted to a
meta device? I have disk mirroring set up for all partition and can't
get the box to boot after installing OpenSSI.
2. root failover without a shared disk?
I've gone thru the docs/* and it looks like root failover can only
be done with shared disk. Is it possible to have a 2-node cluster
with the root partition failed over to the secondary node? It seems
to me that it only works if you have DRBD installed. Without DRBD
installed, I've tried to install the OS onto the secondary node as
well just so it could mount the local disk when the master node goes
down, but that does not seem to work. Is it possible to make that to
work at all? If so, how?
3. LVS/CVIPS for IP failover between 2 nodes?
OpenSSI includes LVS/CVIP which includes Heartbeat. Now I got
Heartbeat to work b/w 2 nodes by installing it seperately, but is
there a way I can install OpenSSI and disabling everything but CVIP
for IP failover?
4. Can OpenSSI migrate open sockets across nodes?
With Heartbeat installed seperately, the IP failover works. But it
would not be able to move open sockets. That's understandable.
However, I've read somewhere (either docs or list archives) that
OpenSSI can migrate open sockets from failed node to other node as
well. Is that true?
Thanks. I'll post what I'm trying to accomplish with OpenSSi in another thread.
