Yeah, it seems that you will have to wait for the bug fix in 7.7 . I's really strange that it took them an year to focus on the bug.
Check the other 2 issues (edit2/3 ) , as you have some typos and missing order/colocation constraints.

Hello,

Your installation guide is based on a redhat7.x distri?

RHEL is the upstream for CentOS.
Which means that CentOS is a RHEL without the "Red Hat" logos, trademarks and other proprietary stuff.
Yet, CentOS and RHEL are fully binary compatible ,as they are created from the same source.

In this case - Red Hat will provide the new version and once the source is available - the CentOS project will rebuild it .

Hello,
I think i got the solution.
I just add the portal into the step 12
rm -f /root/cluster
pcs cluster cib /root/cluster
pcs -f /root/cluster resource create iscsi-target ocf:heartbeat:iSCSITarget portals="192.168.200.244:3260" iqn="iqn.2019-08.ict:sn.1234567890" allowed_initiators="iqn.1998-01.com.vmware:esx12-6f0bfd40" --group iscsi
pcs -f /root/cluster resource create iscsi-lun0 ocf:heartbeat:iSCSILogicalUnit target_iqn=iqn.2019-08.ict:sn.1234567890 lun=0 path=/dev/drbd0 --group iscsi
pcs cluster cib-push /root/cluster

I'm still doing some test but ......

Thanks

Check the 2 issues I have mentioned several posts behind .
Also, keep in mind that if you want to avoid splitbrain, you can always add a third node - 1 CPU, 1 GB RAM VM.
Of course, you will need some extra steps.

Don't forget the moat important task - testing the cluster.
Also check if the failover occurs properly when the client is using the iSCSI as a LVM PV.
lvm.conf should be the same on both nodes.

Thanks,

Actually we are in testing phase.
Question : sync seems to be really slow. How can we check that ? (DRBD9)
I have 10G direct link between the 2 servers
my config is now:
resource drbd0 {
disk {
on-io-error detach;
no-disk-flushes ;
no-disk-barrier;
c-plan-ahead 0;
c-fill-target 24M;
c-min-rate 80M;
c-max-rate 1000M;
}
net {
# max-epoch-size 20000;
max-buffers 36k;
sndbuf-size 1024k ;
rcvbuf-size 2048k;
cram-hmac-alg sha1;
shared-secret "FooFunFactory";
}
volume 0 {
device /dev/drbd0;
disk /dev/drbd/drbd0;
meta-disk internal;
}
on san3 {
node-id 0;
address 10.0.0.30:7000;
}
on san4 {
node-id 1;
address 10.0.0.31:7000;
}
connection {
host san3 port 7000;
host san4 port 7000;
net {
protocol C;
}
}
}

'drbdadm status' should show the sync status.

Yes. But not the speed.
It took 7 days to sync 1.8 TB over 1GB ethernet speed
Now I have setup a 10 GB, but it seems but slow and it will take a month for 8TB
