Hello Mwoolfso,

I tested after changing the data type of open_cnt variable to atomic_t, but it didnot work.

I am planning to test with your fix. Are you talking about the file "/etc/ha.d/ haresources" that you have done code changes to solve the issue ? Can you please let me know what changes u made and if changes in any files other than "/etc/ha.d/ haresources" are required ?

Thanks in anticipation.

The solution to my particular problem was an improperly formatted haresources file for Heartbeat.

Heartbeat was commanding DRBD to unmount/detach a filesystem when a key service was not yet shut down.  Once I cleared that up not only did the messages go away but failover occurs within 2-3 seconds!
