[Gluster-users] 3.3.1 breaks NFS CARP setup

Thank you all for your comments and suggestions.  I am very sorry not to 
have responded before now. Last week I was preoccupied with the problem 
I described in the following thread and then went away for a long weekend.


The excessive load problem turned out to be caused by the problematic 
upgrade and subsequent downgrade that I reported in this thread.  I 
suspect this was because I downgraded using the 3.3.0 packages I found 
at bits.gluster.com rather than the ones in Kaleb's repo.

Unfortunately I have not managed to reproduce the CARP problem on 
upgrade using a pair of test servers.  Therefore the NFS crashing 
problem with CARP I experienced must have been caused by something 
unique to my production cluster.  Two things I didn't try while 
attempting to reproduce the NFS crashes were (1) upgrading from 3.3.0-1 
and (2) using a mixture of CentOS-5 and CentOS-6 servers.  I am now 
using version 3.3.0-11, and I will put some more effort into reproducing 
the CARP problem for a bug report if the same thing happens the next 
time I try to upgrade my production cluster to 3.3.1.
