redhat cluster
Hello Experts,

Please help me with the exact steps on configuring two node cluster on RHEL 6.2,
I failed to configure the simplest cluster by below steps,

1- install RHEL 6.2 64-bit on both nodes
2- add to hosts file of each server ( 1 IP in local NW and another in IP private NW).
x.x.x.x node1-pub
z.z.z.z node2-pub
y.y.y.y node1-pvt
t.t.t.t node2-pvt

3- yum install ricci ( on both nodes )
4- yum install luci ( on 1 node )
5- yum groupinstall "high availability" ( on both nodes )
6- from browser, https://node1-pub:8084 ( login and create new cluster )
give cluster name, nodes name are (node1-pvt),(node2-pvt)
7- cluster is UP with two nodes, so far.
8- configure failover domain and select both nodes.
9- configure resource(IP) and give IP in same range of public network.
10- configure servicegroup and assign the failover domain and the IP resource to the servicegroup.
11- IP doesn't start.

Nov 24 02:59:37 rgmanager start on ip "" returned 1 (generic error)
Nov 24 02:59:37 rgmanager #68: Failed to start service:vip; return value: 1
Nov 24 02:59:37 rgmanager Stopping service service:vip
Nov 24 02:59:37 rgmanager [ip] is not configured
Nov 24 02:59:37 rgmanager Service service:vip is recovering
Nov 24 02:59:38 rgmanager #71: Relocating failed service service:vip
from luci i get this error

Starting cluster "cluname" service "vip" from node "node1-pvt" failed: vip is in unknown state 118

what did i miss?

please help.

Any Clue Gents?

you did buy multiple licenses from red hat for the cluster

so you DO have a large cash investment in the required support contract

Have you used your red hat tech support that you HAD to buy ?


what did i miss?
have you reread the install and set up docs ?
also with the required support license you get access to
login to the red hat site

the RHEL 6 "Cluster_Administration" guide doc

Hopefully you already checked SeLinux Status and Disabled Network Manager Service .
