Announcing the third release candidate for Pacemaker 1.1.10

This RC is a result of work in several problem areas reported by users, some of which date back to 1.1.8:

  • manual fencing confirmations
  • potential problems reported by Coverity
  • the way anonymous clones are displayed
  • handling of resource output that includes non-printing characters
  • handling of on-fail=block

Please keep the bug reports coming in. There is a good chances that this will be the final release candidate and 1.1.10 will be tagged on May 30th.

Help is specifically requested for testing plugin-based clusters, ACLs and admin actions (such as moving and stopping resources, calls to stonith_admin) which are hard to test in an automated manner.

To build rpm packages for testing:

  1. Clone the current sources:

    # git clone --depth 0 git://
    # cd pacemaker
  2. Install dependancies

    [Fedora] # sudo yum install -y yum-utils
    [ALL]	# make rpm-dep
  3. Build Pacemaker

    # make rc
  4. Copy and deploy as needed
