ccs - Cluster Configuration System
A cluster environment that shares resources has information that is
essential to correct operation which must be available to every node in
the cluster. This information may include: names of the nodes
composing the cluster, I/O fencing methods, and more. CCS is the
system that makes it possible for the nodes in a cluster to retrieve
the information they need.
The following is a generic description of the steps one should take to
produce a working CCS environment.
Choose a cluster name. It is important to determine a name for the
cluster before starting. The cluster name is what binds a machine to
specific resources that can only be shared by machines that are members
of the same cluster name.
Create the directory /etc/cluster.
Create the /etc/cluster/cluster.conf file, according to the
cluster.conf(5) man page, on one node in your cluster.
Start ccsd and test the cluster.conf file by using ccs_test. If you
haven’t started a cluster manager yet, you should use the ’force’
option to ccs_test - see the ccs_test(8) man page for more info.
If a failure occurs while parsing the config file, ccs_test should
report "ccs_connect failed: No data available" and /var/log/messages
should report "Unable to parse /etc/cluster/cluster.conf".
