I've got a 5 node setup with ceph running SSD. VM's and Containers have been setup for HA.

We just had a node crash due to hardware, but the machines that were on that node are not failing over. In the GUI they have a grey question mark next to them, and clicking on them shows "no route to hose (595).

I don't seem to be able to bring these machines up on a different node, they appear completely lost?? Does not seem like intended behavior.. Any help would be great.

Interestingly from another node, I can see the conf file for the machines that did not move in the directory of the offline node. These machines did not have any local resources and are using shared ceph storage for the drive.

In the ha-manager status above, they don't appear to be listed. However I know every machine was setup for HA before this node went offline.

Code:
root@phy-hv-sl-0048:/# ls /etc/pve/nodes/phy-hv-sl-0047/qemu-server/
105.conf

Is there a way to force move these for now? Still wondering why they didn't come back up when the node went offline.

Guess I'm restoring from backup! I'll play around with the ha simulator to figure out what's going on.

it seems you did not put them under ha? (this does not happen automatically)

service ct:100 (phy-hv-sl-0051, started)
service ct:102 (phy-hv-sl-0048, started)
service ct:104 (phy-hv-sl-0050, started)
service ct:107 (phy-hv-sl-0051, started)
service vm:103 (phy-hv-sl-0048, started)
service vm:106 (phy-hv-sl-0049, started)
those are the ha managed guests, 101 and 105 are missing...

yes there is a way, but only do this if you are know what your doing and verified that the node they were on is really not running anymore and the storage exists on the target nodes.
if you're not careful, you can corrupt your guests!

Code:
# mv /etc/pve/nodes/OLDNODE/qemu-server/ID.conf /etc/pve/nodes/NEWNODE/qemu-server/ID.conf

Yeah that's the thing, they were already configured for HA but when that node went offline they disappeared from the ha-manager status list.

I got the hardware fixed yesterday on the crashed node, booted it up, and the vm's came back online. They then appeared back in ha-manager status without me doing anything.

mhmm.. that sounds weird. can you post the logs from the nodes and the content of /etc/pve/ha/resources.cfg ?

Absolutely, what log file would be helpful? Here's resources.cfg

Code:
:~# cat /etc/pve/ha/resources.cfg
ct: 100
    group HA
    state started

ct: 102
    group HA
    state started

ct: 104
    group HA
    state started

vm: 103
    group HA
    state started

vm: 106
    group HA
    state started

ct: 107
    group HA
    state started

ct: 101
    group HA
    state started

ct: 108
    group HA
    state started

vm: 105
    group HA
    state started

ok the resources.cfg looks normal AFAICS

what log file would be helpful?
syslog (or journalctl output) from the time the node was going offline until a few minutes after, ideally from all remaining nodes
