    Cannot install ricci in Centos 7. It says”No package ricci available.Error: Nothing to do”. Please help in configuring the clustering in Centos 7.

      As I’ve mentioned in some other queries on the same publish, some packages are deprecated in CentOS 7and RedHat 7. There are new packages introduced.

    Hi Thilina,

    I have created Clusters using LUCI Cluster.conf is created in Nodes but it did not created in master server. I transferred cluster.conf to master using scp.

    I have already raised this query in other posts also, that after creating clusters i am unable to start cman service in master server.

    Unable to get the configuration.
    Cannot find node name in cluster.conf
    cman_tool :Corosync daemon could not start.Check Cluster logs for details.

    Wait, so are all three servers serving content? Such that the CMS server, Node 1, and Node 2 could all be running an Apache webserver? Or is the CMS server not affiliated in this matter?

    • Hi Clark,

      The CMS does not affiliated in any content serving activity. It only serves the purpose of handling Nodes. But if you want the CMS too to serve the content, it not impossible but not recommended by the good standards.

    Has anyone tried this on Fedora? I am looking to use this for a school project and I want to use more up to date software.
