This issue has been solved. See solution.


i read the 5.0  BARG documentation but it is recommended to install apache on shared space disk.

is It possible to install apache binary on a local system disque and put configuration file on shared disk.

please help me find documentation who explain step by step procedure to do that.

If you look at the BARG for 5.0MP3 ( p147) or 5.1 ( p172) - ie: later versions, they state:


• Install the Apache server on shared or local disks

• Ensure that you are able to start the Apache Web server outside of VCS control, with the specified parameters in the Apache configuration file (for example: /etc/apache/httpd.conf). For more information on how to start the server: See “About bringing an Apache Web server online outside of VCS control”


Regardless of the version, the following required attributes might also be relevant from your description:

• ConfigFile (Full path and file name of the main configuration file for the Apache server)

• httpdDir (Full path of the directory to the httpd binary file)

You can surely install Apache locally on each of the cluster nodes. However please note that the Apache agent in VCS would need the ConfigFile accessible on the node where the Apache resource would bring online. Also the actual http root directory containing all the ServerRoot data needs to be shared so that the same copy is available to the cluster nodes when the resource is failed over.

To summarize:

1. You can have apache binaries installed locally.

2. Make sure the ConfigFile is on shared disk so that all nodes get the same copy of ConfigFile.

3. Make sure your ServerRoot is on shared disk so that all nodes get the same ServerRoot files/directories.

You can create symbolic links on the all cluster nodes to the ConfigFile residing on shared directory.
