- Thanks.
- Cluster mostly works so I don't think it's a corosync issue.
- Configuration XML is actually created with crm shell.
- Is there a summary of changes from 1.0 to 1.1?

Thanks for the quick reply.

Corosync is v2.3.3. We've already been through the issues getting corosync working. 

The cluster works in many ways:
- Pacemaker sees both nodes.
- Pacemaker starts all the resources.- Pacemaker promotes an instance of the stateful Encryptor resource to Master/active.
- If the node running the active Encryptor goes down, the standby Encryptor is promoted and the DC changes.
- Manual failover works (fiddling with the master-score attribute).

The problem is that a failure in one of the dependencies doesn't cause promotion anymore.

Thanks for the cibadmin command, I missed that when reading the docs.

I omitted some detail. I didn't export the XML from the old cluster to the new cluster. We create the configuration with the crm shell, not with XML. The sequence of events is

- install corosync, pacemaker, etc.- apply local config file changes.
- start corosync and pacemaker on both nodes in cluster.
- verify that cluster is formed (crm_mon shows both nodes online, but no resources).
- create cluster by running script which passes a here document to the crm shell.
- verify that cluster is formed

The crm shell version is "1.2.5+hg1034-1ubuntu4". I've checked the XML against the "Pacemaker Configuration Explained" doc and it looks OK to my admittedly non-knowledgeable eye.

I tried the cibadmin command in hopes that this might tell me something, but it made no changes. "cib_verify --live-check" doesn't complain either.
I copied the XML from a Pacemaker 1.0.X system to a Pacemaker 1.1.X system and ran "cibadmin --upgrade" on it. Nothing changed there either. 

Is there a quick summary of changes from 1.0 to 1.1 somewhere? The "Pacemaker 1.1 Configuration Explained" doc has a section entitled "What is new in 1.0" but nothing for 1.1. I wouldn't be surprised if there is something obvious that I'm missing and it would help if I could limit my search space.

I've done quite a bit of experimentation: changed the syntax of the colocation constraints, added ordering constraints, and fiddled with timeouts. When I was doing the port to Ubuntu, I tested resource agent exit status but I'll go back and check that again. Any other suggestions?

BTW, I've fixed some issues with the Pacemaker init script running on Ubuntu. Should these go to Clusterlabs or the Debian/Ubuntu maintainer?


Here's the configuration again, hopefully with indentation preserved this time:
