MDS server fails with error:

    ~# pstorage -c <cluster_name> get-event
    27-08-13 07:25:39  MON ERR mdsd #5 died unexpectedly (122): can't set local address, err 98 (Address already in use)


Multiple MDS servers exist on the same host are bound to the same IP address.

    ~# cat /etc/pstorage/clusters/<cluster_name>/mds.list
    # autogenerated, unique


  1. Stop MDS service :

    ~# service pstorage-mdsd stop
  2. Kill all mdsd processes if there are any :

    ~# kill -9 `pgrep mdsd`
  3. Delete or comment unneeded line in the list of MDS servers:

    ~# cat /etc/pstorage/clusters/<cluster_name>/mds.list
    # autogenerated, unique
  4. Start MDS service back :

    ~# service pstorage-mdsd start
