sbd.service disabled after running ha-cluster-join

This document (000019624) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP4


When using SBD as the fencing agent, the ha-cluster-join script sets up the cluster but the sbd.service is disabled.  This causes sbd.service to not be started as a dependency of pacemaker.service.


1. Manually enable sbd.service on joining node.

hostname:~ # systemctl enable sbd.service

2. Restart pacemaker.

hostname:~ # crm cluster restart


This is caused by a regression in the crmsh package.  Investigation is ongoing.
