5.5.2. Adding a Cluster Service to the Cluster

To add a cluster service to the cluster, follow the steps in this section.
  1. Open /etc/cluster/cluster.conf at any node in the cluster.
  2. Add a service section within the rm element for each service. For example:
        <rm>
            <service autostart="1" domain="" exclusive="0" name="" recovery="restart">
    
            </service>
        </rm>
    
    
  3. Configure the following parameters (attributes) in the service element:
    • autostart — Specifies whether to autostart the service when the cluster starts.
    • domain — Specifies a failover domain (if required).
    • exclusive — Specifies a policy wherein the service only runs on nodes that have no other services running on them.
    • recovery — Specifies a recovery policy for the service. The options are to relocate, restart, or disable the service.
  4. Depending on the type of resources you want to use, populate the service with global or service-specific resources
    For example, here is an Apache service that uses global resources:
        <rm>
            <resources>
                    <fs name="web_fs" device="/dev/sdd2" mountpoint="/var/www" fstype="ext3"/>
                    <ip address="127.143.131.100" monitor_link="on" sleeptime="10"/>
                    <apache config_file="conf/httpd.conf" name="example_server" server_root="/etc/httpd" shutdown_wait="0"/>
            </resources>
            <service autostart="1" domain="example_pri" exclusive="0" name="example_apache" recovery="relocate">
                    <fs ref="web_fs"/>
                    <ip ref="127.143.131.100"/>
                    <apache ref="example_server"/>
            </service>
        </rm>
    
    
    For example, here is an Apache service that uses service-specific resources:
        <rm>
            <service autostart="0" domain="example_pri" exclusive="0" name="example_apache2" recovery="relocate">
                    <fs name="web_fs2" device="/dev/sdd3" mountpoint="/var/www2" fstype="ext3"/>
                    <ip address="127.143.131.101" monitor_link="on" sleeptime="10"/>
                    <apache config_file="conf/httpd.conf" name="example_server2" server_root="/etc/httpd" shutdown_wait="0"/>
            </service>
        </rm>
    
    
    • example_apache — This service uses global resources web_fs, 127.143.131.100, and example_server.
    • example_apache2 — This service uses service-specific resources web_fs2, 127.143.131.101, and example_server2.
  5. Update the config_version attribute by incrementing its value (for example, changing from config_version="2" to config_version="3">).
  6. Save /etc/cluster/cluster.conf.
  7. (Optional) Validate the updated file against the cluster schema (cluster.rng) by running the ccs_config_validate command. For example:
    [[email protected] ~]# ccs_config_validate 
    Configuration validates
    
  8. Run the cman_tool version -r command to propagate the configuration to the rest of the cluster nodes.
  9. Verify that the updated configuration file has been propagated.
