Really?

So, no response to my query on if there's a step-by-step method of removing Clustering from OES2 Linux. So, really, in the history of clustering on OES2 Linux, no one has ever needed or wanted to remove clustering? Is there some dirty little secret that can't be revealed here or what? I just find it hard to believe there isn't documentation on removing clustering services.......Anyone??????

Re: Really?

Assumptions you are only doing NSS resources.

1. Have the resources go offline.
2. In NSSMU manually online the pool and volume
3. Use NSSMU to upgrade the volume and pool objects into edirectory.
4. Test to make sure that users can access data.
5. In NSSMU remove the sharing flag from the devices
6. Prevent clustering from loading up on bootup "chkconfig novell-ncs off"
7. Remove the cluster container and anything under it in edirectory.
8. Optional: Uninstall the clustering RPMs

Also, on Linux, delete all of these files and directories:

/var/opt/novell/ncs/*
/etc/opt/novell/ncs/*
/etc/sysconfig/novell/ncs
/etc/ocfs2/cluster.conf

And also delete the server object in the cluster container.
