I am configuring 2 nodes cluster by installing SLES10 sp4 as OS on both the nodes.

My setup Environment includes:

a). Two Servers(Installed with SLES10 SP4)
b). FC Switch
c). SAN storage

I have performed the configurations as follows:
I am configuring 2 nodes "fault-tolerant" cluster by installing SLES10 sp4 as OS on both the nodes. I am following steps to do the same:

Step 1: Installed VNC on both the nodes to take the GUI sessions
Step 2: I have installed OES2SP3 and configured e-Directory for Node-1.
Step 3: I have configured Novell Cluster Services on both the nodes
Step 3:NTP on both the nodes using YAST.
Step 4: I have configured the hacluster pwd on both the nodes by running the following command on both the nodes.
# passwd hacluster
Step 5: I have installed SYSSTAT tool on both the nodes using Yast.
Step 6: I have edit the Kernel file (/etc/sysconfig/kernel) by adding the following line:
INITRD_MODULES="ata_piix megaraid_sas processor thermal fan reiserfs edd lpfc"
Step 7: I have configured Password less SSH on both the nodes.
Step 8: I have performed the heartbeat configuration using Yast on Node-1 and Node-2


  1. ISSUE :


NSSMU was no longer functioning, and kept giving 'segmentation fault' errors.
I find that if I shutdown (unload) NCS I can manage NSS fine with both imanager and nssmu, however as soon as NCS is running I get segmentation errors on NSSMU and CIMON errors on imanager.
But when I create a new Pool on the Storage Array NSSMU claims that CVB has not registered for pool events.

Exact Message:

21710 CVB has not registered for pool events.

I am not able to understand this error und how to solve it.
How can I create new Pools for new Volumes?




  • I would like to know whether the above steps which I am following to configure the 2-Node Cluster is proper or not?
  • Also kindly let me know whether I can configure the STONITH or not?


Kindly guide me with proper configuration steps.

Thanks in advance!
