Corosync reporting interface FAULTY

Corosync is reporting the following error in systemd journal: 

Dec 18 10:26:25 ha2 corosync[1698]:   [TOTEM ] Marking ringid 0 interface FAULTY

A similar message can be seen in corosync-cfgtool with -s option: 

id =
status = Marking ringid 0 interface FAULTY
id =
status = ring 1 active with no faults


To fix this issue, corosync needs to be restarted. To do this, run: 

systemctl stop pacemaker 
systemctl start pacemaker 

The above command will stop pacemaker & corosync. Running the above commands will also move all resources from this node to the 2nd node. Depending on business/application, downtime might be needed. 


This can be happen if corosync was configured with a specific IP address but that IP address was not set on any ethernet card. It can also happen if, during bootup, corosync started when the network was not fully ready. 

Some errors might look like: 

Dec 18 10:25:48 linux-311j kernel: 8139cp 0000:00:04.0 eth1: link down
Dec 18 10:25:48 linux-311j kernel: IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth1: link is not ready
Dec 18 10:26:18 ha2 wicked[1027]: eth1            setup-in-progress
