|Switching over a VMDK resource causes a system down on the original active node.
| Cause : When the quickCheck daemon PID file /tmp/LK-vmdk-* of a VMDK resource is deleted, a new quickCheck daemon is started by the recovery process. The old daemon will not be stopped. Only the quickCheck daemon corresponding to the PID file is stopped when resources are removed, so the old daemon detects the VMDK detachment and stops the system.
Action : Do not delete the PID file.
In general, files under /tmp that have not been updated for a certain period of time are automatically deleted. This is accomplished by running tmpwatch script periodically or systemd-tmpfiles, etc. Please configure exclusions according to your environment to prevent PID files from being deleted.
Example: for systemd-tmpfiles
echo "x /tmp/LK-vmdk-*" > /etc/tmpfiles.d/lifekeeper.conf
How to check if multiple quickCheck daemons are running and what to do if they are running
for tag in `ins_list -f, -a scsi -r vmdk | cut -d, -f4`; do echo -n "$tag: "; pgrep -f "vmdk_quickCheck.ps1.*$tag$" | wc -l; doneand if the result is not “<vmdk tag name>: 1”, execute the following:
pkill -INT -f "^/opt/LifeKeeper/bin/pwsh /opt/LifeKeeper/lkadm/subsys/scsi/vmdk/bin/vmdk_quickCheck.ps1" pkill lkcheck

Error details are recorded in /var/log/lifekeeper.log. Check the log and review the settings.
|It takes longer to bring the VMDK resource in service.
| Cause: The processing performed during bringing the resource in service takes more time in proportion to the number of virtual machines running on the ESXi host.
Action: A fundamental fix is under consideration for a future release. As an immediate workaround for this issue, please consider the following:
