Red hat cluster


I'm having a very strange problem with red hat cluster.
After testing it in the lab, I tried to install a new cluster and received the following error :

cman not started: Cannot start, cluster name is too long or other CCS error /usr/sbin/cman_tool: aisexec daemon didn't start

I've checked the internet for that error, but nothing. I decided to to take the example from cluster.conf man, which looks like that :

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<cluster alias="qwe" config_version="1" name="qwe">
<clusternode nodeid="1">

<clusternode nodeid="2">

And still I get the same error.
I can find my servers both from DNS (FQDN and short name) and they also appear in /etc/hosts.

Any ideas ?

in the hosts file, try renaming as server1
in the hosts file, try renaming as server2

then, in the config, remove .com from them.

Ultimately, they should be reachable from eachother as server1 and server2 even with ping.

red hat cluster

my /etc/hosts file looks like : localhost.localdomain localhost server1

and I changed the cluster.conf so it will be a one noe cluster and without the .com and till the same error.

The problem was another NIC on both servers having link to each other but no IP on them.

Seting an IP (or removing the cross cable) solved it.
