Thank you Lars and Adam for your recommendations. I have ping-timeout set to 5 and it still happened. Lars with this fencing idea. I have been contemplating this, however I am rebuilding servers which are already in place, All the configuration related to cman and drbd was literally copied and pasted from the old servers. Is this concept of having dual-primary without fencing being a mis-configuration something new? I ask this because as you would imagine by now, the old servers are working with the exact same configuration and have no problems at all. And while your idea makes perfect sense it would also make sense to have the exact same problem on every version of drbd. There is a difference to be consider I guess. I am now installing this servers using SL6 as you saw in my original email, the old servers are working with Debian 6.0.7 The old servers are running drbd8-utils 2:8.3.7-2.1 Thank you Fabrizio Zelaya Linux Systems Administrator TravelCenters of America (O): (440) 808-4412 (M):(216) 470-3356 fzelaya at ta-petro.com From: Lars Ellenberg <lars.ellenberg at linbit.com> To: drbd-user at lists.linbit.com Date: 12/10/2015 08:06 AM Subject: Re: [DRBD-user] DRBD spontaneously loses connection Sent by: drbd-user-bounces at lists.linbit.com On Sat, Dec 05, 2015 at 07:17:22PM -0800, Adam Randall wrote: > Try setting ping-timeout to 5 Which would be the default. But yes, because of the message "PingAck did not arrive in time", at least this may be the right tunable. But the real mis-configuration is that you apparently try to run dual-primary without any fencing at all. Without fencing, you get to keep the pieces. Without fencing, any replication link hickup results in data divergence, aka a "split brain" scenario. You really want to avoid that. -- : Lars Ellenberg : http://cp.mcafee.com/d/5fHCNAi43qb31EV7fFzD3hOrKrjhju7ef9Lf6QQkTxMWZPhOUrjhju7ef9L6zASztVdUQsFT7f6ThjPZbq2FWnm-sqYKrDFtrVNHOVKZDxNEVssvW_8TpvsvLRXBQQT6ejKM-zstORQr8EGTshVkffGhBrwqrhdFCXYDtNBUsqehPXxKVI045gQ638q2undEh885SWv4KgGT2TQ1hYGjFNYE49jVsSMCqem3obZ8Qg6BIe1oO75SWv4QKCy0e1oO76y2yRojS7RrEumd41ZqvgQgmH27SDaI3rW9LgSesKml0nJ | Your Way to High Availability : DRBD, Linux-HA and Pacemaker support and consulting DRBD® and LINBIT® are registered trademarks of LINBIT, Austria. __ please don't Cc me, but send to list -- I'm subscribed _______________________________________________ drbd-user mailing list drbd-user at lists.linbit.com http://cp.mcafee.com/d/1jWVIg4x0q43qb31EV7fFzD3hOrKrjhju7ef9Lf6QQkTxMWZPhOUrjhju7ef9L6zASztVdUQsFT7f6ThjPZbq2FWnm-sqYKrDFtrVNHOVKZDxNEVssvW_8TpvsvLRXBQQT6ejKM-zstORQr8EGTshVkffGhBrwqrjdFCXYDtNBUsqehPXxKVI06vaAWsva12k-nMjlS67OFek7qUx4wwnrFYjq4i21tKDNbAaJMJZ0kvaAWsva12k-ndI9CzBwS2_id41Fr3wmcxNtKDNdbFEw3wmcxNEwEJm4ZxZmW7Bzh0vmDQd45GMxZFOH0S-yrXI39vU3S -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...
