Improvements for "Explore high availability of GlusterFS through CTDB" How-to

  • Some of the information at https://support.rackspace.com/how-to/glusterfs-high-availability-through-ctdb/ is out-of-date:

    • Point (6) in the "Install CTDB" section is out-of-date.  Setting the "private dir" option has not been required for a long time.
    • In "References" the link to http://ctdb.samba.org/testing.html is stale.  We're in the process of moving documentation to the wiki, which means that out-of-date documentation like this page has gone.  Better off linking to https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/CTDB_and_Clustered_Samba
  • Thanks for the heads up! 

    I've created an issue in the GitHub repository we use for our documentation. https://github.com/rackerlabs/rackspace-how-to/issues/1607. Pull requests from the public are welcome, so if you're comfortable making the changes, you're welcome to.

    Thanks,

  • Hi mschwenke, I'm preparing to update the GlusterFS article, and before I do, I wanted to clarify what to do with the private dir step. Do you recommend just deleting the step entirely, or should I mark it as (Optional).

    Thanks for catching the outdated information!

    Best,
