How to create Pacemaker.


node1/2# yum install pacemaker corsync
node1/2# yum install pcs fence-agents-all

Start Service

node1/2# systemctl enable pcsd
node1/2# systemctl start pcsd

Configuration of Cluster

node1/2# echo redhat |passwd --stdin hacluster
one node
node1# pcs cluster auth -u hacluster -p redhat  server1 server2
node1# pcs cluster setup --start --name test-cluster --wait_for_all=0 server1 server2

--wait_for_all=0 : If it is 1node, start cluster.
node1# pcs status

Configration Pacemaker Poperty

Check Property
# pcs property list
Cluster Properties:
 cluster-infrastructure: corosync
 cluster-name: test-cluster
 dc-version: 1.1.16-a14efad
 default-resource-stickiness: INFINITY
 have-watchdog: false
 no-quorum-policy: ignore
 stonith-enabled: false
Disalbe STONISH (Shoot The Other Node In The Head)
# pcs property set stonith-enabled=false
Disable auto failback
# pcs property set default-resource-stickiness="INFINITY"
Do not manage the minimum number required

Even if the number of clusters has not reached the required minimum number, no special action is taken and management of all nodes is continued.

# pcs property set no-quorum-policy=ignore

Configuring Fencing (STONITH)

STONITH (Shoot The Other Node In The Head)

#pcs stonith list
#pcs stonith describe XXXXX
#pcs stonith list
#pcs stonith describe XXXXX
##                  unique name    fence agent   target node              device addr              options
# pcs stonith create fence_server1  fence_ilo4    pcmk_host_list="server2-ilo" ipaddr="xx.xx.xx.xx" action="reboot" login="admin" passwd="secret" delay=15 op monitor interval=60s
# pcs stonith create fence_server2  fence_ilo4    pcmk_host_list="server2-ilo" ipaddr="xx.xx.xx.xx" action="reboot" login="admin" passwd="secret" op monitor interval=60s

If you dont't use Fence, You can do action="off".
# pcs stonith show
 stonith-ilo4-server1    (stonith:fence_ilo4):    Started 
 stonith-ilo4-server2    (stonith:fence_ilo4):    Started 
Check stonith
#pcs property --all |grep -E "stonith-enabled|stonith-action"
 stonith-action: reboot
 stonith-enabled: true
Test fencing
# pcs stonith fence server2

-> server2 is rebooted.
Disable/Enable STONITH
# pcs resource disable RESOURCE_STONITH
# pcs resource enable RESOURCE_STONITH

Setting Resources


disable auto failover
It is failovered with manual operation or node down.
'migration-threshold' is retry number of resource restart.

pcs resource defaults resource-stickiness="INFINITY" migration-threshold="0"


set virtual IP address

pcs resource create ipfront ocf:heartbeat:IPaddr2 ip=192.168.40.xx cidr_netmask=24 nic="eth0" op monitor interval=10s
pcs resource create ipmaintenance ocf:heartbeat:IPaddr2 ip=192.168.50.xx cidr_netmask=24 nic="eth1" op monitor interval=10s


systemd (systemctl)
pcs resource create httpd systemd:httpd --group zabbix-group
pcs resource create php-fpm systemd:php-fpm --group zabbix-group
pcs resource create zabbix-server systemd:zabbix-server --group zabbix-group
lsb (/etc/init.d/xxxx)


pcs resource create mysql lsb:mysqld op monitor interval=60s
pcs resource update mysql op start interval=30s timeout=15 on-fail=ignore
pcs resource update mysql op stop interval=0s timeout=15 on-fail=ignore

Order of Resource

pcs constraint order frontip then maintenanceip
pcs constraint order maintenanceip then mysql


pcs resource group add mysqlgroup frontip maintenanceip mysql

Delete Resouce

# pcs resouce delete  XXXX

Cleanup Failure History cleanup

# pcs resource cleanup res_stonith_ipmilan01



# pcs config backup /tmp/`date +%Y%m%d`_`uname -n`_pcs_config_backup
