Hello, LINSTOR is still in an experimental phase of its development, so it is probably only useful to developers at this point.

Online/offline refers to the satellite module on a node. Only one controller is online at any time. You need a cluster manager and either a database on shared storage, on replicated storage, or a replicated database, or a centralized database server for failover between multiple controllers. > 3. Why some cmd return: 'This command is deprecated or not implemented', why? Parts of the current command line client were ported from the older drbdmanage, and many old command entries still exist but serve no purpose. As far as I know, those have been removed in some newer version that might not have been pushed to public repositories yet. > 4. Can you give me some guide doc about using linstor? There is virtually zero documentation on LINSTOR available at this point. The only ones using it right now is a handful of people who are either in LINBIT or closely working together with us on planning future integration of LINSTOR into their projects. > [root@node-1 ~]# linstor list-node > ╭────────────────────────────────────────────╮ > ┊ Node ┊ NodeType ┊ IPs ┊ State ┊ > ╞┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄╡ > ┊ node-1 ┊ CONTROLLER ┊ 10.10.0.72 ┊ OFFLINE ┊ > ┊ node-4 ┊ CONTROLLER ┊ 10.10.0.75 ┊ OFFLINE ┊ > ╰────────────────────────────────────────────╯ With only two controllers you can not create any resources. You'd need satellite nodes or combined nodes for the controllers or combined nodes to work with. > I use zfs: The ZFS storage driver is still untested (other than a few unit tests), so at this point, noone knows whether or not it actually works on any system other than its developer's workstation. The developer told me there are probably still some parts missing to make it work on most systems. > When I run the cmd in node-4: > [root@node-4 ~]# linstor list-node > ╭───────────────────────────────╮ > ┊ Node ┊ NodeType ┊ IPs ┊ State ┊ > ╞┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄╡ > ╰───────────────────────────────╯ > > How to connect node-1 and node-4? Currently, the LINSTOR client must always be connected to the controller (it may be redirected there when attempting to connect it to a satellite), which connects to its registered satellites. Satellites do not see the entire configuration, they basically see only those objects that they need to know about. Controllers (re)connect to satellites automatically. Thanks for your interest and for giving it a try, but unfortunately it is probably still too early for the LINSTOR software to be useful to you (unless you are planning to set up some joint strategic project with LINBIT, if that's your goal, please contact our office directly). LINSTOR is still being developed and many things are still missing (the most important one probably being documentation).
