Trustees lost on linux file systems...

Hello Everyone,

I am testing a 2 node OES linux cluster and sometimes when I shutdown
both nodes I loose trustees on my NCP volumes... Has anyone run into
this? Is there a fix?

Thanks!

Re: Trustees lost on linux file systems...

I just applied the below patch and the patch still did not fix the
problem...

Re: Trustees lost on linux file systems...

So, i have 2 test clusters, we will call them cluster BOB and cluster
OBO... I updated all the latest patches (including the 252 kernel) on
cluster BOB and the trustees work fine but either the kernel patch or
the NCS patches broke my clustering services... Here is the error
message that I get...

BOB1:~ # /etc/init.d/novell-ncs start
Starting Novell Cluster Services
Mounting adminfs at /admin ... already mounted
Error communicating with cluster (/_admin/Novell/Cluster/Node.cmd)
Is Novell Cluster Services running?

There was a problem executing command "join".
Please try again. If the problem persists, please
contact Novell Technical Support

So, i found this TID 10100195 followed the directions and clustering is
still broke...

On cluster OBO I installed all the patches except the new kernel and NCS
packages... Clustering services still works fine but my trustee's are
not working...

Here is log info from ncpserv.log
L] ProcessLogLevel changed to "warning"
ProcessLogLevel set file size = 4194304
[!] InsertVolume: volume=SYS added to volume table
[!] InsertVolume: volume=HOME added to volume table
[!] InsertVolume: volume=APPS added to volume table
[!] Error looking up trustee information for ff000001; ccode1: 0,
ccode2: -601

[!] Error looking up trustee information for ff000001; ccode1: 0,
ccode2: -601

[!] IPCListenerThread: system stack size = 8388608


The only other difference between the 2 (besides the patches) is that
cluster BOB only has a 500GB /home and cluster OBO has a 1.5TB /home...
Is there a limitation on the size of volume that trustees will work???

Does anyone know if there is a fix for the broken clustering services as
well as the trustee's issues?

One more thing... I have verified that the trustee database on my ncp
volume increases in size when I add trustee's to the ncp volume and the
trustee database stays that same size after reboot but it looks like
eDir is not reading the database for whatever reason...

HELP!

Thanks!
