Error description

  • A file, which is part of a PowerHA file collection
    with automatic file propergation enabled, gets
    changed on node1.
    
    The file gets propagated to remote nodes.
    
    clutils.log on node1 looks like:
    Fri Jan 03 23:43:40 2014: clfileprop: Successfully
     propagated file /tmp/testfile to node node2.
    
    The file then gets changed again on node1.
    
    But a few minutes later node2 copies its latest
    version back to node1, so that the last update
    on node1 is lost.
    
    clutils.log on node2 looks like:
    Fri Jan 03 23:53:29 2014: clfileprop: Successfully
     propagated file /tmp/testfile to node node2.
    

Local fix

  • Wait for the file to be copied back
    (which happens within 10 minutes
    per default) before making a second
    update to a file, which is part of
    a HA file collection with automatic
    propagation enabled.
    

Problem summary

  • If a file which is part of a PowerHA file collection with
    automatic file propagation enabled is propagated to remote
    nodes and subsequently changed, it is possible for a remote
    node to propagate the file back to the original node,
    overwriting the subsequent changes.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Update an odm attribute (HACMPfcmodtime) with file
    modification time.  Recently modified files will not be
    propagated over.
    

Temporary fix
