SubjectRe: Linux Cluster using shared scsi
Date
From
I've copied linux SCSI and quoted the entire message below so they can follow.

Your assertion that this works in 2.2.16 is incorrect, the patch to fix the
linux reservation conflict handler has never been added to the official tree.
I suspect you actually don't have vanilla 2.2.16 but instead have a redhat or
other distribution patched version. Most distributions include the Steeleye
SCSI clustering patches which correct reservation handling.

I've attached the complete patch, which fixes both the old and the new error
handlers in the 2.2 kernel it applies against 2.2.18.

Questions :
