Hello Rohit,

Is the Host HA provider start working with Ceph. The reason I am asking is because, I am not able to create a VM with Ceph storage in a kvm host with HA enabled and I am getting the following error while creating VM.

============
.cloud.exception.StorageUnavailableException: Resource [StoragePool:2] is unreachable: Unable to create Vol[9|vm=6|DATADISK]:com.cloud.utils.exception.CloudRuntimeException: org.libvirt.LibvirtException: unsupported configuration: only RAW volumes are supported by this storage pool
============

Regards
Victor

Hi James, (/cc Simon and others),


A new feature exists in upcoming ACS 4.11, Host HA:

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CLOUDSTACK/Host+HA

You can read more about it here as well: 
http://www.shapeblue.com/host-ha-for-kvm-hosts-in-cloudstack/

This feature can use a custom HA provider, with default HA provider implemented 
for KVM and NFS, and uses ipmi based fencing (STONITH) of the host. The current 
HA mechanism provides no such method of fencing (powering off) a host and it 
depends under what circumstances the VM HA is failing (environment issues, ACS 
version etc).

As Simon mentioned, we have a (host) HA provider that works with Ceph in near 
future.

Regards.

James,


Ceph is a great solution and we run all of our ACS storage on Ceph. Note that it adds 
another layer of complexity to your installation, so you're going need to develop some 
expertise with that platform to get comfortable with how it works. Typically you don't 
want to mix Ceph with your ACS hosts. We in fact deploy 3 separate Ceph Monitors, and 
then scale OSDs as required on a per cluster basis in order to add additional resiliency 
(So every KVM ACS cluster has it's own Ceph "POD").  We also use Ceph for S3 
storage (on completely separate Ceph clusters) for some other services.


NFS is much simpler to maintain for smaller installations in my opinion. If the 
IO load you're looking at isn't going to be insanely high, you could look at 
building a 2 node NFS cluster using pacemaker and DRDB for data replication 
between nodes. That would reduce your storage requirement to 2 fairly low power 
servers (NFS is not very cpu intensive). Currently on a host failure when using 
a storage other than NFS on KVM, you will not see HA occur until you take the 
failed host out of the ACS cluster. This is a historical limitation because ACS 
could not confirm the host had been fenced correctly, so to avoid potential 
data corruption (due to 2 hosts mounting the same storage), it doesn't do 
anything until the operator intervenes. As of ACS 4.10, IPMI based fencing is 
now supported on NFS and we're planning on developing similar support for Ceph.


Since you're an school district, I'm more than happy to jump on the phone with 
you to talk you through these options if you'd like.

Hi Simon,

Thanks for getting back to me. I created one single NFS share and added it
as primary storage. I think I better understand how the storage works, with
ACS.

I was able to get HA working with one NFS storage, which is good. However,
is there a way to incorporate multiple NFS storage pools and still have the
HA functionality? I think something like GlusterFS or Ceph (like Ivan and
Dag described) will work better.

Thank you Simon, Ivan, and Dag for your assistance!

James,


Try just configuring a single NFS server and see if your setup works. If
you have 3 NFS shares, across all 3 hosts, i'm wondering whether ACS is
picking the one you rebooted as the storage for your VMs and when that
storage goes away (when you bounce the host), all storage for your VMs
vanishes and ACS tries to reboot your other hosts.


Normally in a simple ACS setup, you would have a separate storage server
that can serve up NFS to all hosts. If a host dies, then a VM would be
brought up on a spare hosts since all hosts have access to the same storage.

Your other option is to use local storage, but that won't provide HA.

Hi Dag,

Thank you for responding back. I am currently running ACS 4.9 on an Ubuntu
14.04 VM. I have the three nodes, each having about 1TB of primary storage
(NFS) and 1TB of secondary storage (NFS). I added each NFS share into ACS.
All nodes are in a cluster.

Maybe I'm not understanding the setup or misconfigured something. I'm
trying to setup an HA environment where if one node goes down, running an
HA marked VM, the VM will start on another host. When I simulate a network
disconnect or reboot of a host, all of the nodes go down (STONITH?).

I am unsure on how to setup an HA environment, if all the nodes in the
cluster go down. Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks,
James

Hi James,

I think  you possibly have over-configured your KVM hosts. If you use NFS
(and no clustered file system like CLVM) then there should be no need to
configure STONITH. CloudStack takes care of your HA, so this is not
something you offload to the KVM host.

(As mentioned the only time I have played with STONITH and CloudStack was
for CLVM – and I eventually found it not fit for purpose, too unstable
and
causing too many issues like you describe. Note this was for block
storage
though – not NFS).
