Hi.

This is a retired system, a just two node cluster. I should check to
get hold of some old files.

login to iManager (using the original "Admin") works fine, all "Roles
and Tasks" as well, except "Cluster Manager", when selecting the
cluster object, it takes some 15 seconds, then I receive the message:

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Error: Clustering Error

File Protocol error occurred: cannot open the NCS version file on the
selected cluster. The Cluster software may still be running on this
server.
-------------------------------------------------------------------


tail -f /var/log/messages gives this output at the same time:

and

didn't help me so far.


As the Cluster Resources can be loaded / migrated through a PuTTY
session to the cluster nodes, this is not really critical, but
amazing...


Any suggestions, what to investigate?

TIA.

Regards, Rudi.
