the suite fails to install

Bug #47645 reported by Fabio Massimo Di Nitto
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
redhat-cluster-suite (Ubuntu)
Fix Released

Bug Description

Due to some endianess fixes that did enter the code, ccs_test is now returning a proper error code making some init scripts to fail.

This leads to the entire cluster suite to fail to start at the first install and apt-get to report the installation as unsuccessful.

Workaround: install first ccs and provide a valid config for it and install the rest of the suite at a later time.

Other things I have noticed on the failed install. I am willing to help with these issues.

ccs, cman, clvm all try to load upon installation which means that a working /etc/cluster/cluster.conf must already exist. Suggest either or both:
 - have the installation create a miminal cluster.conf that points to localhost (or something) that prevents these packages from appearing to fail up on installation.
 - install the cluster packages without starting them. The install depends on a kernel update anyway - have the services start on next reboot with the new kernel

Should install modify /etc/lvm/lvm.conf for: locking_library, locking_type, locking_dir

gulm really is depreciated so install should not try to start the service - even on reboot. Recommend removing it from the suite - at least force legacy users to manually configure/start.

some fence scripts that should be added.

sample cluster.conf files for simple two-node and multi-node clusters.
