[ovirt-users] NFS Multipathing

2018-08-30 Thread Thomas Letherby
Hello all,

I've been  looking around but I've not found anything definitive on whether
Ovirt can do NFS Multipathing, and if so how?

Does anyone have any good how tos or configuration guides?

Thanks,

Thomas

That's exactly what I needed to know, thanks all.

I'll schedule a script for the nodes to reboot and patch once every week or
two and then I can let it run without me needing to worry about it.

Thanks, that answers my follow up question! :)

My concern is that I could have a host off-line for a month say, is that
going to cause any issues?

Thanks,

Thomas

[ovirt-users] Maximum time node can be offline.

2018-02-07 Thread Thomas Letherby
Hello all,

Is there a maximum length of time an Ovirt Node 4.2 based host can be
offline in a cluster before it would have issues when powered back on?

The reason I ask is in my lab I currently have a three node cluster that
works really well, however a lot of the time I only actually need the
resources of one host, so to save power I'd like to keep the other two
offline until needed.

I can always script them to boot once a week or so if I need to.

Thanks,

Thomas
