Cluster Node reboot vm mode freeze


Active Member
May 20, 2019
Hello everyone, I have 3 nodes in cluster. h1, h3, h6
Virtual Environment 5.4-5

All Vm are in a shared resource that all nodes access.
A few days ago the node h1 was restarted but never returned.
Wait for vm to be passed to the other nodes but that did not happen.

The node h1 retained the vm and placed it in freeze mode.

I could not take control of the vm in that node.

When I went to the HA sector, I put them in Ignored mode, but when I wanted to start them from the console of the node h3, I said that there was no VM or the .conf file of the VM.

At this moment I have some Vm in Fence mode

In the syslog it shows me this error:
May 20 09:26:34 h3 pve-ha-crm [2083]: recover service 'vm: 117' from fenced node 'h1' to node 'h3'
May 20 09:26:34 h3 pve-ha-crm [2083]: got unexpected error - Configuration file 'nodes / h1 / qemu-server / 117.conf' does not exist

The result of omping I think is correct:
unicast, xmt/rcv/%loss = 9983/9983/0%, min/avg/max/std-dev = 0.045/0.084/0.281/0.018
multicast, xmt/rcv/%loss = 9983/9983/0%, min/avg/max/std-dev = 0.054/0.094/0.187/0.021

In my switches I do not have IGMP enabled, they have to be enabled if or if so that HA works?

What could have happened? What do I need to configure or test?

Try to restart HA as follows
systemctl restart pve-ha-lrm

If this does not help post a pvereport about all your nodes and check what

systemctl status pve-ha-lrm

Same problem here. I restarted 1 of 3 nodes. That node is now in the status "wair_for_agent_lock".
Restarting pve-ha-lrm did not work.

Hello, I rebooted the node that had problems, then I started a vm on that node and it was solved. Luck.
