SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 High Available Extention


Using tunefs.ocfs2 command for resizing a ocfs2 partition in a HACluster will cause the following error:

tunefs.ocfs2: Unable to access cluster service while opening device "/dev/DEVICE"


This is currently being evaluated by development and may be resolved in a future release.
