Thank you both for your responses. Interesting. I couldn't find them until today. I guess I wasn't looking well enough in the April archive. I searched using Google and found them on Gossamer-threads.com; then went back to the mailing list archive.
DRBD Filesystem Pacemaker Resources Stopped
So, I was able to find the issues myself and am excited to announce that I had the cluster successfully working as of Friday, April 13 at 1:30pm PST. Unfortunately, I wasn't taking notes very well; but okay, I think enough to know what I would need to look out for on a future build.
From what I did note, I found that I was missing the closing right curly brace for the DRBD resource (nfs.res).
I commented out the Startup section entries that I added.
@Andreas; Thank you for sharing your knowledge on my not needing the Startup entries that I added. It is a nice validation. I was not sure. And also about letting me know that I need to put Pacemaker into maintenance mode. Funny, I just read about that the other day too. I'm sure I have a lot more to learn and I'm eager to as well.
I also found that my CIB was broken; but after I started adding the NFS Export resources (This was after I found out about the DRBD resource). I missed an ending quote around one of the exportfs resource directories (Vol01).
When creating the resources, I kept receiving errors about he default timeout being set to 20 seconds and the LinBit NFS tutorial (which I am so grateful for) was calling for the monitor interval to be set at 30 seconds on many of them.
So, I changed the default timeout to 40 seconds and that seems to take care of the problems I continued to have with the resources.
Another problem happened from inexperience. I had created my exports in the /etc/exports file, not realizing that the exportfs OCF resources were already creating the NFS exports. I realized that from running the mounts command.
Now, I have another issue while attempting to perform a test failover. I'll send in a separate email about that.
I appreciate all of the help.
