Trouble Shooting the Configuration

Verification and debugging of the aws-vpc-move-ip Cluster Agent

As root user run the following command using the same parameters as in your cluster configuration:

# OCF_RESKEY_address= OCF_RESKEY_routing_table= OCF_RESKEY_interface=eth0 OCF_RESKEY_profile= /usr/lib/ocf/resource.d/suse/aws-vpc-move-ip monitor 

Check the console output (DEBUG keyword) for error messages

Stop the overlay IP Address to be hosted on a given Node

As root user run the following command using the same parameters as in your cluster configuration:

 # OCF_RESKEY_address= OCF_RESKEY_routing_table= OCF_RESKEY_interface=eth0 OCF_RESKEY_profile= /usr/lib/ocf/resource.d/suse/aws-vpc-move-ip stop Check DEBUG output for errors and verify that the virtual IP address is NOT active on the current node with the command ip a Start the overlay IP Address to be hosted on a given Node As root user run the following command using the same parameters as in your cluster configuration: # OCF_RESKEY_address= OCF_RESKEY_routing_table= OCF_RESKEY_interface=eth0 OCF_RESKEY_profile= /usr/lib/ocf/resource.d/suse/aws-vpc-move-ip start 

Check DEBUG output for error messages and verify that the virtual IP address is active on the current node with the command ip a.

Start the overlay IP Address to be hosted on a given Node

As root user run the following command using the same parameters as in your cluster configuration:

# OCF_RESKEY_address=<virtual_IPv4_address> OCF_RESKEY_routing_table=<AWS_route_table> OCF_RESKEY_interface=eth0 OCF_RESKEY_profile=<AWS-profile> /usr/lib/ocf/resource.d/suse/aws-vpc-move-ip start

Check DEBUG output for error messages and verify that the virtual IP address is active on the current node with the command ip a.

Testing the Stonith Agent

The Stonith agent will shutdown the other node if he thinks that this node isn't anymore reachable. The agent can be called manually as super user on a cluster node 1 to shut down cluster node 2. Use it with the same parameter as being used in the Stoneith agent configuration:

# stonith -t external/ec2 profile=<AWS-profile> port=<cluster-node2> tag=<aws_tag_containing_hostname> -T off <cluster-node2>

This command will shutdown cluster node 2. Check the errors reported during execution of the command if it's not going to work as planned.
Re-start cluster node 2 and test STONITH the other way around.

The parameter used here are:

  • AWS-profile : The profile which will be used by the AWS CLI. Check the file ~/.aws/config for the matching one. Using the AWS CLI command aws configure list will provide the same information
  • cluster-node2: The name or IP address of the other cluser node
  • aws_tag_containing_hostname: The is the name of the tag of the EC2 instances for the two cluster nodes. We used the name pacemaker in this documentation

Checking Cluster Log Files

Check the file: /var/log/cluster/corosync.log

Useful Commands

As super user:

crm_resource -C Reset warnings showing up in the command crm status
crm configure edit Configure all agents in vi
crm configure property maintenance-mode=true Set Pace Maker in maintenance mode. This allows to reconfigure, start, stop, resync. SAP HANA 
crm configure property maintenance-mode=false Bring Pace Maker from maintenance mode back into controlling, production mode. Allow Pace Maker to explore the current configuration. This can take a few seconds.

SAP HANA related commands (as <SAP>adm user)

hdbcons -e hdbindexserver 'replication info' Check whether HANA is replicating, detailed
hdbnsutil -sr_state   Check whether HANA is replicatiing. Show the master, slave relationship
