SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability 15-SP1, 15-SP2, 12-SP4 and 12-SP5 SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications 15-SP1, 15-SP2, 12-SP4 and 12-SP5 SUSE Manager 4.0 and 4.1
After updating the fence-agents package to version 4.6.0, the fencing resources are no longer started and failover is not possible anymore.
Either a downgrade to fence-agents-4.4.0 or an update (recommended) to fence-agents-4.7.0 will restore fencing functionality.
Failure was caused by a call with a missing argument (zone) which was introduced upstream into 4.6 by an incorrect patch. Example: # journalctl -f -u corocync -u pacemaker [OUTPUT TRIMMED] Jan 20 14:01:59 gce-node01 /fence_gce: Failed retrieving GCE zone. Please provide --zone option: get_zone() missing 1 required positional argument: 'instance' Jan 20 14:01:59 gce-node01 /fence_gce: Please use '-h' for usage [OUTPUT TRIMMED] """
