MDS service cannot start after failed PCS installation.

During the installation process following error appears:

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 175, in execWithRedirect
    raise RuntimeError, errstr
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 162, in start_services
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 175, in start_not_started_services
    if self.start_services([service]):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 1775, in setup_mds
    if self.start_not_started_services(service_list, started_services):

    self.pstorage_failed = not self.setup_mds(started_services, mounted_ploop_path)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 2126, in runParallelsScripts

  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 1528, in handleRenderCallback
RuntimeError: Error running /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon: No such file or directory

It can also be found in anaconda logs after the installation (/root/anaconda-tb-*).


Avahi package failed to be installed during the host setup procedure. MDS service cannot start because it requires avahi daemon.


Install avahi package manually:

# yum install avahi -y

Start MDS service manually:

# service pstorage-mdsd start
