Hi,

i have a small Proxmox Cluster with 3 Nodes and enabled HA for this Cluster. With enabled HA i have trouble updating the nodes, at some point apt restarts the updated Proxmox Services and rebuilds the initrd for the Kernel, at this step Proxmox (watchdog?) restarts the node because it is not responding in time and apt/dpkg fails to complete because it got interrupted with a reboot. After reboot i have to continue the package updates and reboot again to get the new kernel bootet.

Is there a way to stop Proxmox rebooting the host on package update? or a way to disable this watchdog functionality?

Thanks

sj

there was a bug in older versions of the corosync package where the corosync service was stopped at the beginning of the upgrade and started again at the end. if the steps inbetween took too long, a node could get fenced. this should not happen anymore with the recent corosync packages, because corosync only gets restarted at the end now.
