How to Check if a Reboot is Due to a Node being Fenced out of an OCFS2 / o2cb Cluster (Doc ID 2096087.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 02, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.0.1 and later
Linux OS - Version Enterprise Linux 3.0 and later
Private Cloud Appliance - Version 1.0.1 and later
Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software - Version 2.0.6.2.2 to 2.0.6.2.2
Private Cloud Appliance X5-2 Hardware
Linux x86-64

Goal

 On Oracle Linux, Oracle VM and Oracle Private Cloud Appliance (PCA), when making use of the Oracle Clustered File System version 2 (OCFS2), it may be sometimes difficult to determine if a server which rebooted has been fenced out of the ocfs2 cluster due to not writing its heartbeat in time or if the cause is external to the o2cb cluster.
