[OpenAFS] missing mount point RO volumes
Fri, 14 Jul 2006 12:03:17 -0400
the most likely thing would be, ummm, operator error...
- remove link and do vos release
- go ooops, webserver needs that link, put back the link
- forget to do vos release
it can happen...
Quoting Andrew Bacchi <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
> We were getting a time out from our web servers when they tried to access
> files in our AFS cell. It turned out that the mount point for this
> directory was gone at the two RO sites. I looked at the RW volume and it
> needed a vos release. That cured the mount point problem and the web
> servers resumed normal operation.
> My questions:
> What could have caused the RO volumes to become unmounted?
> If the RO volumes are inaccessible, doesn't the RW volume become the
> failover site?
> What can I do to prevent this in the future?
