OCFS2 on redhat6.2


Hi has any one configured ocfs2 1.4.9-1 on redhat linux 6.2, kernel is 2.6.32-220. I was unable to find a ocfs2 release for his particular kernel version.

Or Do I need to compile

thanks and Regards

apparently it's not possible to build 1.4.x on a 2.6 kernel. 1.6 is in the 2.6.32 kernel though, and apparently the ocfs2-tools 1.4 package should still work, but note that in general Oracle seems to be being deliberately awkward to promote Unbreakable over RHEL.

Hi That is true Oracle has announced that ocfs2 is built in to the lats kernel (UL). I am stuck even for me to install tools 1.4 I have to down grade readline to 5 (dont know what ells I need to downgrade)

you mention 1.6 in the ocfs site highest version that I can find is 1.4.9 for RHEL5

Thanks you and best Regards

ocfs is *IN* the 2.3.32 kernel I believe, it's mainline code now.

Hi I just learned that redhat has removed ocfs support from redhat 6 kernel

https://forums.oracle.com/forums/thr...readID=2424389

any idea how I can get the compatible driver for redhat 6.2, ells can any one tell me what I can use to configure a shared cluster filesystem (same as ocfs2) in 2 node configuration.


Thanks and regards

Hi All we have written to REDHAt and as of now I did not heard from them on this, I'll post this info when they will reply. As a fall back (due to the facet that we are running out of time) the customer is in the process of deciding

1. Downgrade to a point where this is supported
2. Go with Oracle linux

Thanks and Regards

Hi All I went with downgrade since time restriction, I am quite sure Redhat needs to give a solution since they have removed what is supposed to be a part of mainline kernel (but I am no expert)or at least explanation

Regards
