    Amazing article! I haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but does it work with NFSv4?

    • Yes Tomas, It will work with NFSv4

        Thanks to this article, I’ve managed to get the whole NFSv4 pacemaker cluster deployed via Puppet.

        One small thing, you did group the resources together, but you didn’t set any order. I had a problem where the nfsroot resource failed because the nfsshare was not yet available. I’ve configured ordering constraints to resolve it.

    Is this type of fence devices works if i using another scenario such as app cluster?

    I just noticed that you use a shared disk on VirtualBox.

    What happens when you actually try to fence a node manually? For example:

    # pcs stonith fence nfs2

    I cannot see anything here showing that you tested it, and that it worked. I don’t use VirtualBox therefore genuinely curious.

    Great article ! Exactly my need.
    Just a question regarding resource configuration how much memory and cpu would you dedicate for each cluster node, for almost 50 users using a shared disk of almost 500GB?

    I just added a disk as /dev/sdb, but when I issue the command ls -l /dev/disk/by-id I could not see what wwn-0x6001405e49919dad5824dc2af5fb3ca0 related to sdb, so I could not configure by your hints any any further !!! Any hints could provide ?
