Bug Description

Binary package hint: cluster-agents

## Issue

* Cluster IP resource cannot be started

* Error messages in /var/log/syslog:

  Apr 5 13:38:32 natty2 lrmd: [1199]: info: RA output: (virtual-ip:start:stderr) touch:
  Apr 5 13:38:32 natty2 lrmd: [1199]: info: RA output: (virtual-ip:start:stderr) cannot touch `/var/run/resource-agents/IPaddr-eth0'
  Apr 5 13:38:32 natty2 lrmd: [1199]: info: RA output: (virtual-ip:start:stderr) : No such file or directory
  Apr 5 13:38:32 natty2 lrmd: [1199]: info: RA output: (virtual-ip:start:stderr)

## Environment

* Natty Narwhale 11.04 (all architectures)

## Resolution

* (Workaround) Create /var/run/resource-agents manually

## Root Cause

Package does not create directory under /var/run. Some resource agents
check it, and will create it if necessary.

## Diagnostic Steps

# grep lrmd /var/log/syslog:

Hi Eric,

Thank you for reporting bugs and trying to make Ubuntu Server better.

I'll look into this. It seems that you are using IPaddr RA. Have you tried using the IPaddr2 by any chance and see if you are experiencing something similar?

Thank you!

Hi, Andres

actually, I came across this after I used the "apache" template for the web resource group, /usr/share/pacemaker/templates .

I'll see if IPAddr2 has the same issue.

When configured as an IPaddr2 resource, the directory is created automatically when the resource is started. I haven't yet figured out exactly where this occurs, however.

Hi Eric,

Yes I've encountered the same situation. I have various groups of test clusters on which the rundir (/var/run/resource-agents) is present. However, I'm about to install a fresh cluster with IPaddr and see if that's the problem

Cheers,
