D.2.2. Non-typed Child Resource Start and Stop Ordering

D.2.2. Non-typed Child Resource Start and Stop Ordering

Additional considerations are required for non-typed child resources. For a non-typed child resource, starting order and stopping order are not explicitly specified by the Service resource. Instead, starting order and stopping order are determined according to the order of the child resource in /etc/cluster.cluster.conf. Additionally, non-typed child resources are started after all typed child resources and stopped before any typed child resources.

For example, consider the starting order and stopping order of the non-typed child resources in Example D.4, “Non-typed and Typed Child Resource in a Service”.

<service name="foo">
  <script name="1" .../>
  <nontypedresource name="foo"/>
  <lvm name="1" .../>
  <nontypedresourcetwo name="bar"/>
  <ip address="10.1.1.1" .../>
  <fs name="1" .../>
  <lvm name="2" .../>
</service>
Example D.4. Non-typed and Typed Child Resource in a Service

Non-typed Child Resource Starting Order

In Example D.4, “Non-typed and Typed Child Resource in a Service”, the child resources are started in the following order:

  1. lvm:1 — This is an LVM resource. All LVM resources are started first. lvm:1 (<lvm name="1" .../>) is the first LVM resource started among LVM resources because it is the first LVM resource listed in the Service foo portion of /etc/cluster/cluster.conf.

  2. lvm:2 — This is an LVM resource. All LVM resources are started first. lvm:2 (<lvm name="2" .../>) is started after lvm:1 because it is listed after lvm:1 in the Service foo portion of /etc/cluster/cluster.conf.

  3. fs:1 — This is a File System resource. If there were other File System resources in Service foo, they would start in the order listed in the Service foo portion of /etc/cluster/cluster.conf.

  4. ip:10.1.1.1 — This is an IP Address resource. If there were other IP Address resources in Service foo, they would start in the order listed in the Service foo portion of /etc/cluster/cluster.conf.

  5. script:1 — This is a Script resource. If there were other Script resources in Service foo, they would start in the order listed in the Service foo portion of /etc/cluster/cluster.conf.

  6. nontypedresource:foo — This is a non-typed resource. Because it is a non-typed resource, it is started after the typed resources start. In addition, its order in the Service resource is before the other non-typed resource, nontypedresourcetwo:bar; therefore, it is started before nontypedresourcetwo:bar. (Non-typed resources are started in the order that they appear in the Service resource.)

  7. nontypedresourcetwo:bar — This is a non-typed resource. Because it is a non-typed resource, it is started after the typed resources start. In addition, its order in the Service resource is after the other non-typed resource, nontypedresource:foo; therefore, it is started after nontypedresource:foo. (Non-typed resources are started in the order that they appear in the Service resource.)

Non-typed Child Resource Stopping Order

In Example D.4, “Non-typed and Typed Child Resource in a Service”, the child resources are stopped in the following order:

  1. nontypedresourcetwo:bar — This is a non-typed resource. Because it is a non-typed resource, it is stopped before the typed resources are stopped. In addition, its order in the Service resource is after the other non-typed resource, nontypedresource:foo; therefore, it is stopped before nontypedresource:foo. (Non-typed resources are stopped in the reverse order that they appear in the Service resource.)

  2. nontypedresource:foo — This is a non-typed resource. Because it is a non-typed resource, it is stopped before the typed resources are stopped. In addition, its order in the Service resource is before the other non-typed resource, nontypedresourcetwo:bar; therefore, it is stopped before nontypedresourcetwo:bar. (Non-typed resources are stopped in the reverse order that they appear in the Service resource.)

  3. script:1 — This is a Script resource. If there were other Script resources in Service foo, they would stop in the reverse order listed in the Service foo portion of /etc/cluster/cluster.conf.

  4. ip:10.1.1.1 — This is an IP Address resource. If there were other IP Address resources in Service foo, they would stop in the reverse order listed in the Service foo portion of /etc/cluster/cluster.conf.

  5. fs:1 — This is a File System resource. If there were other File System resources in Service foo, they would stop in the reverse order listed in the Service foo portion of /etc/cluster/cluster.conf.

  6. lvm:2 — This is an LVM resource. All LVM resources are stopped last. lvm:2 (<lvm name="2" .../>) is stopped before lvm:1; resources within a group of a resource type are stopped in the reverse order listed in the Service foo portion of /etc/cluster/cluster.conf.

  7. lvm:1 — This is an LVM resource. All LVM resources are stopped last. lvm:1 (<lvm name="1" .../>) is stopped after lvm:2; resources within a group of a resource type are stopped in the reverse order listed in the Service foo portion of /etc/cluster/cluster.conf.
