Syslog errors when creating a cluster. How can i stop from flooding my log file ?


Mar 1 20:20:57 host153 pmxcfs[1029929]: [status] crit: cpg_send_message failed: 9
Mar 1 20:20:57 host153 pmxcfs[1029929]: [dcdb] notice: cpg_join retry 1740
Mar 1 20:20:57 host153 corosync[1001341]: [TOTEM ] Totem is unable to form a cluster because of an operating system or network fault. The most common cause of this message is that the local firewall is configured improperly.

Mar 1 20:20:59 host153 pmxcfs[1029929]: [dcdb] notice: cpg_join retry 1760

Must be my firewall. But it seems Totem is trying form a cluster. How can i stop this process ?


Also get error No ticket (401) When start a VM !??

unable to open file '/etc/pve/nodes/host153/qemu-server/100.conf.tmp.1034226' - Permission denied ???

It tells me my node is offline while all systems or running !? I can not create new VM or OpenVZ ?

Make sure you do not block corosync related traffic.

Temporarily switch off all IPTables just to see if it's indeed firewall related.

What or the ports (Firewall) of corosync ? Can i stop service corosync ? Here my network.
I also use Shorewall version 4.4.11.6 on top of Proxmox works perfect !!!

My hostname of Proxmox show up red. (Offline) Needs to be green. I also cant make a new KVM Openvz any more
Like the system believe my local hostname node is offline !? All this occure while try to make a cluster. Pffff ..
First i could not login any more !? Then i put a backup back: /etc/cluster and /var/lib/pve-cluster
On those files must be a mistake i believe. Need to restore back befor i did try to create the cluster.

When i try to make a backup i get error:



INFO: starting new backup job: vzdump 100 --remove 0 --mode snapshot --compress lzo --storage store_1 --node host153

Re: Syslog errors when creating a cluster. Totem is trying form a cluster. How can i

Problem have been solved. By settings the system "cluster" in Local mode :)

So my problem was. System went to read only mode. Then you can not make backups or create KVM or Openvz
any more. All this because something went wrong when creating a cluster.

I think my machine did think it was a slave, So he could not do much like backups or create KVM or Openvz.

Errors like:

Also get error No ticket (401) When start a VM

unable to open file '/etc/pve/nodes/host153/qemu-server/100.conf.tmp.1034226' - Permission denied

You can solve this by settings system in Local mode. :D

Source: http://forum.proxmox.com/threads/9567-help-emergency


First stop it..
# /etc/init.d/pve-cluster stop

then start in Local mode
# /usr/bin/pmxcfs -l

I don't use the cluster so i keep my system running in Local mode. So i have again total control :) ppffff

I hope this will help out others ... :)

Re: Syslog errors when creating a cluster. Totem is trying form a cluster. How can i

I run a three node cluster without fencing and once in a while I get the same problem with one of the nodes turning red and PVE not accepting my PAM root credentials.

What I do in that case is use the command line to migrate the virtual machines to a correctly working node and completely take the machine out of the cluster, reinstall, join the cluster again and migrate the virtual machines back to the fresh node.

A bit of a hassle but works for me especially because of the live migration feature I have no downtime.

Thnx for your info. Haha yeah that's some hassle. But for me this solved my problem. I only needed to move all vm's to a new server. I just copy my backups and restore them. Thats ok for me. Because i use a firewall, can give problems like i had. Maybe off topic. But do you use a firewall ? Some protection ?
