Default [OpenFiler / HA] Heartbeat can not activate LVM volume: open file descriptors

[ [OpenFiler / HA] Heartbeat can not activate LVM volume: open file descriptors ]

gilly05 and other folks,

This guide is great:

Installing and Configuring Openfiler with DRBD and Heartbeat


Unfortunately I have not suceeded to make DRBD and Heartbeat to work with OpenFiler 2.3.

I think DRBD is working fine, as far as syncing the my chosen partitions.
However Heartbeat does not seem to be able to mount / activate correctly the LVM volume that I configured for DRBD.
It complains about "open file descriptors", like this:

ERROR: File descriptor 4 left open File descriptor 5 left open File descriptor 6 left open File descriptor 7 left open File descriptor 8 left open File descriptor 9 left open File descriptor 10 left open File descriptor 12 left open
ERROR: Generic error

I can get more details shortly.


Are there any other guides more recent / revised / updated in order to set up HA (DRBD and Heartbeat) in OpenFiler 2.3?
