I am testing gpfs 5.0.2 v on RHEL 7.5
I am able to create and use the cluster fine. as part of my testing, i have been following a force destroy method of the cluster to cleanup the nodes and do a fresh gpfs cluster setup. i do it with 'mmdelnode -f' on each node but in spectrum scale 5.0.2 i am not able to do it.
it fails with below message:
# mmdelnode -f
mmdelnode: This node still belongs to cluster GS.cluster_name.gs-new. To delete this node, run mmdelnode -N node0 from a remaining node in that cluster.
is there a change in behavior for 'mmdelnode -f' ?
i understand that we can shutdown gpfs and then do graceful cleanup with mmdelnode but since this is all part of a script, i used mmdelnode -f to do force cleanup.
so i am looking for a simpler way.
any help would be appreciated.
