After updating the "resource-agents" package, the pacemaker cluster is not able to start the "azure-lb" resource in an Azure Cloud HA Cluster.

The following is a snippet of the error message in the cluster:

  ... node1 azure-lb(rsc_nc_HN1_HDB01)[3410]: ERROR: /usr/lib/ocf/resource.d/heartbeat/azure-lb: line 99: kill: (3437) - No such process

This issue can occur in Azure Cloud when IPv6 is disabled in the system (for example "ipv6.disable=1" is set in the kernel parameters).

The following "resource-agents" package versions are affected:

  - SLE HAE 15 SP3: resource-agents-4.8.0+git30.d0077df0-150300.8.40.2
  - SLE HAE 15 SP4: resource-agents-4.10.0+git40.0f4de473-150400.3.25.2
  - SLE HAE 15 SP5: resource-agents-4.12.0+git30.7fd7c8fa-150500.3.6.2


This issue is reported to Engineering and a fix is currently being worked on.

A workaround is to downgrade "resource-agents" package to the previous version:

  - SLE HAE 15 SP3: resource-agents-4.8.0+git30.d0077df0-150300.8.37.1
  - SLE HAE 15 SP4: resource-agents-4.10.0+git40.0f4de473-150400.3.22.
  - SLE HAE 15 SP5: resource-agents-4.12.0+git30.7fd7c8fa-150500.3.3.1

If downgrading the "resource-agents" package version is not possible, please open a Support Case to request a PTF (Program Temporary Fix).


A regression occurred due to a bug fix to support IPv6 in Azure HA Cluster environments.
