Expanding a LUN and a GFS2 filesystem

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]




I am running CentOS with a GFS2 filesystem on a Dell EqualLogic SAN.  I created the filesystem by mapping an RDM through VMWare to the guest OS.  I used pvcreate, vgcreate, lvcreate, and mkfs.gfs2 to create the filesystem and the underlying architecture.  I've included the log I created to document the process below.

I've already increased the size of the LUN on the SAN.  Now, how do I increase the size of the GFS2 filesystem and the LVM beneath it?  Do I need to do something with the PV and VG as well? 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Here is the log of the process I used to create the filesystem:

With the RDM created and all the daemons started (luci, ricci, cman) now I can config GFS.  Make sure they are running on all of our nodes.
We can even see the RDM on the guest systems:

[root@test03]# ls /dev/sdb
/dev/sdb

[root@test04]# ls /dev/sdb
/dev/sdb

So we are doing this using lvm clustering:  http://emrahbaysal.blogspot.com/2011/03/gfs-cluster-on-vmware-vsphere-rh...
and http://linuxdynasty.org/215/howto-setup-gfs2-with-clustering/
 
We've already set up gfs daemons and fencing and whatnot.
Before we start to create the LVM2 volumes and Proceed to GFS2, we will need to enable clustering in LVM2.

[root@test03]# lvmconf --enable-cluster

I try to create the cluster FS
[root@test03]# pvcreate /dev/sdb
  connect() failed on local socket: No such file or directory
  Internal cluster locking initialisation failed.
  WARNING: Falling back to local file-based locking.
  Volume Groups with the clustered attribute will be inaccessible.
  Physical volume "/dev/sdb" successfully created
One internet source says:

>> That indicates that you have cluster locking enabled but that the cluster LVM
>> daemon (clvmd) is not running.

So let's start it,

[root@test03]# service clvmd status
clvmd is stopped
[root@test03]# service clvmd start
Starting clvmd:
Activating VG(s):   2 logical volume(s) in volume group "VolGroup00" now active
  clvmd not running on node test04
                                                           [  OK  ]
[root@test03]# chkconfig clvmd on

Okay, over on the other node:

[root@test04]# service clvmd status
clvmd is stopped
[root@test04]# service clvmd start
Starting clvmd: clvmd could not connect to cluster manager
Consult syslog for more information
[root@test04]# service cman status
groupd is stopped
[root@test04]# service cman start
Starting cluster:

   Mounting configfs... done

   Starting fencing... done
                                                           [  OK  ]
[root@test04]# chkconfig cman on
[root@test04]# service luci status
luci is running...
[root@test04]# service ricci status
ricci (pid  4381) is running...
[root@test04]# chkconfig ricci on
[root@test04]# chkconfig luci on
[root@test04]# service clvmd start
Starting clvmd:
Activating VG(s):   2 logical volume(s) in volume group "VolGroup00" now active
                                                           [  OK  ]

And this time, no complaints:

[root@test03]# service clvmd restart
Restarting clvmd:                                          [  OK  ]

Try again with pvcreate:

[root@test03]# pvcreate /dev/sdb
  Physical volume "/dev/sdb" successfully created

Create volume group:

[root@test03]# vgcreate gdcache_vg /dev/sdb
  Clustered volume group "gdcache_vg" successfully created

Create logical volume:

[root@test03]# lvcreate -n gdcache_lv -L 2T gdcache_vg
  Logical volume "gdcache_lv" created

Create GFS filesystem, ahem, GFS2 filesystem.  I screwed this up the first time.

[root@test03]# mkfs.gfs2 -j 8 -p lock_dlm -t gdcluster:gdcache -j 4 /dev/mapper/gdcache_vg-gdcache_lv     
This will destroy any data on /dev/mapper/gdcache_vg-gdcache_lv.
  It appears to contain a gfs filesystem.

Are you sure you want to proceed? [y/n] y

Device:                    /dev/mapper/gdcache_vg-gdcache_lv
Blocksize:                 4096
Device Size                2048.00 GB (536870912 blocks)
Filesystem Size:           2048.00 GB (536870910 blocks)
Journals:                  4
Resource Groups:           8192
Locking Protocol:          "lock_dlm"
Lock Table:                "gdcluster:gdcache"
UUID:                      0542628C-D8B8-2480-F67D-081435F38606

Okay!  And!  Finally!  We mount it!

[root@test03]# mount /dev/mapper/gdcache_vg-gdcache_lv /data
/sbin/mount.gfs: fs is for a different cluster
/sbin/mount.gfs: error mounting lockproto lock_dlm

Wawawwah.  Bummer.
/var/log/messages says:

Jan 19 14:21:05 test03 gfs_controld[3369]: mount: fs requires cluster="gdcluster" current="gdao_cluster"

Someone on the interwebs concurs:

the cluster name defined in /etc/cluster/cluster.conf is different from the one tagged on the GFS volume.

Okay, so looking at cluster.conf:

[root@test03]# vi /etc/cluster/cluster.conf

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<cluster config_version="25" name="gdao_cluster">

Let's change that to match how I named the cluster in the above cfg_mkfs

[root@test03]# vi /etc/cluster/cluster.conf

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<cluster config_version="25" name="gdcluster">

And restart some stuff:

[root@test03]# /etc/init.d/gfs2 stop
[root@test03]# service luci stop
Shutting down luci: service ricci                          [  OK  ]
[root@test03]# service ricci stop
Shutting down ricci:                                       [  OK  ]
[root@test03]# service cman stop

[root@test03]# service cman stop

AAAARRRRGGGHGHHH

[root@test03]# service ricci start
Starting ricci:                                            [  OK  ]
[root@test03]# service luci start

Point your web browser to https://test03.gdao.ucsc.edu:8084 to access luci

[root@test03]# service gfs2 start
[root@test03]# service cman start
Starting cluster:
   Loading modules... done
   Mounting configfs... done
   Starting ccsd... done
   Starting cman... done

                                                           [FAILED]

I had to reboot. 

[root@test03]# service luci status
luci is running...
[root@test03]# service ricci status
ricci (pid  4385) is running...
[root@test03]# service cman status
cman is running.
[root@test03]# service gfs2 status

Okay, again?

[root@test03]# mount /dev/mapper/gdcache_vg-gdcache_lv /data

Did that just work?  And on test04

[root@test04]# mount /dev/mapper/gdcache_vg-gdcache_lv /data

Okay, how about a test:

[root@test03]# touch /data/killme

And then we look on the other node:

[root@test04]# ls /data
killme

Holy shit. 
I've been working so hard for this moment that I don't completely know what to do now.
Question is, now that I have two working nodes, can I duplicate it?

Okay, finish up:

[root@test03]# chkconfig rgmanager on
[root@test03]# service rgmanager start
Starting Cluster Service Manager:                          [  OK  ]
[root@test03]# vi /etc/fstab

/dev/mapper/gdcache_vg-gdcache_lv /data         gfs2    defaults,noatime,nodiratime 0 0

and on the other node:

[root@test04]# chkconfig rgmanager on
[root@test04]# service rgmanager start
Starting Cluster Service Manager:
[root@test04]# vi /etc/fstab

/dev/mapper/gdcache_vg-gdcache_lv /data         gfs2    defaults,noatime,nodiratime 0 0

 And it works.  Hell, yeah.
