Cluster Partition

Hello,

I'm having difficulty grasping how the special cluster partition is created
during the install of NCS on Linux. In my case, I created a 50mb space on
my Xiotech SAN for this.

Now, I run yast to configure NCS. It comes to the screen where I can
specify the device for the SBD partition. In my case, my server has the
50mb partition listed as sdd. My question is: what the heck to I specify?
I would assume, /dev/sdd. What happens if I put in nothing?

Just curious how this works on a Linux server. I want to make sure I'm
doing things right.

Thanks.

Cluster Partition

Yes, you type the name of the device, in this case /dev/sdd

The YaST configuration of NCS will use the sbdutil to create the SBD
partition. man sbdutil will give details of the command line version of
this tool. You can create the SBD partition at any time. If you decide to
do this after NCS configuration, you must set the SharedDiskFlag = True by
selecting the properties of the cluster container in eDirectory using
iManager or ConsoleOne tools
