CLOUD_NETCONFIG_MANAGE in a HA Cluster

This document (7023633) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension 12

Situation

In a HA Cluster in a Cloud Enviroment a configured IP Address sometimes disappears resulting in a restart or sometimes even a resource migration.

Resolution

In the configuration file of the network interface, 
     /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0 
modify  the option

   CLOUD_NETCONFIG_MANAGE="yes"

is set. This has to be set to

   CLOUD_NETCONFIG_MANAGE="no"

Cause

The CLOUD_NETCONFIG_MANAGE parameter makes the cloud network plugin check whether all IP's on an interface are configured for that interface and if not remove them. Which is a good and desireable behaviour normally.

In a HA Cluster normally the only way for a client to connect to the Cluster is via an IP from the cluster that is dynamically set by the Cluster and not in the configuration file.

As such the two concepts conflict with each other.

In a HA Cluster Setup it is recommended to set the parameter to

   NO

to ensure that the IP wont be touched.
