I've done a quick test on a secondary node and reported the result in
the #centos-social channel directly to Ralph, but I think that it would
be a good idea to "archive" my answer on the list too.
The machine on which i tested an update wasn't up2date and so was
missing that module-init-tools-3.3-0.pre3.1.60.el5_5.1 rpm (released
three weeks ago, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=593504)
As a consequence, that drbd secondary node didn't come back
automagically (known issue, see above)
I discussed with Ralph to see if that was a good idea (or a bad one) to
put an extra Requires: line in the kmod spec to fetch that fixed
module-init-tools rpm prior to the kmod update.
One can argue that sysadmins have to keep their machine up2date (which
Another one can argue that if those sysadmins didn't update their
machine prior to the drbd83 update, some 'bug reports' will appear on
bugs.centos.org to say that the latest drbd update broke their cluster .
Thoughts about this ?
