  • Applies to:
  • Virtuozzo 6.0


  • Parallels Cloud Server version installed is PCS 6.0 update 5.
  • High Availability is configured on a Cloud Storage cluster in accordance with the documentation.
  • Containers or Virtual Machines were joined to cluster with the help of vzctl/prlctl tool.
  • On a node crash (or any other kind of unavailability), the resources are not getting relocated to another node.
  • The corresponding CT/VM resource gets marked as 'Broken' in shaman stat.
  • /var/log/shaman.log contains no errors about the failed relocation.


The issue is recognized as a product bug with internal ID PSBM-24950. Virtual Environments, added to cluster via vzctl/prlctl tool with --ha-enable key have a missing PATH variable inside their shaman configuration file, e.g.:

[root@pcs1 ~]# cat /pstorage/pcs2/.shaman/md.569f08fb2ae44b9c/resources/ct-104

The correct configuration example:

[root@pcs1 ~]# cat /pstorage/pcs2/.shaman/md.569f08fb2ae44b9c/resources/ct-104


Rejoin the node into HA cluster:

# service shamand stop
# shaman leave
# shaman -c $CLUSTERNAME join
# service shamand start

Alternatively, the PATH variable can be added manually into the corresponding file:

# echo 'PATH=private/104' >> /pstorage/pcs2/.shaman/md.569f08fb2ae44b9c/resources/ct-104
