default-resource-stickiness cluster property is deprecated

SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension 12


After an update during normal cluster operations with


shell or via scripts calling the crm shell there might be errors like

 gitanes:~ # crm configure <some_command>
 ERROR: Warnings found during check: config may not be valid
 Do you still want to commit (y/n)? y

which will break scripts and might puzzle Administrators. While the normal cluster operations are not affected.



 crm verify

will show the culprit and the solution as

 warning: unpack_config:        Support for 'default-resource-stickiness' cluster property is deprecated and will be removed in a future release (use resource-stickiness in rsc_defaults instead)

the easiest solution for this issue is to set the proper parameter with

 crm configure rsc_defaults resource-stickiness=1000

and then to remove via

 crm configure edit

the old deprecated one "default-resource-stickiness".

Please keep in mind that the above given 1000 as a value is only an example and should be adjusted to the old value of default-resource-stickiness.

No stop or restart of any cluster element is necessary for this adjustment.


The property value


is deprecated.
