[slurm-users] Fwd: Slurm MySQL database configuration

Thanks for responses.
I probably didn't make my initial point totally clear, so following up
The NFS server is considered to be sufficiently highly available
("Designed for 99.9999% availability with redundant hot-swap components,
including controllers and I/O modules, power supplies, cooling modules")
that we had assumed this was sufficient for the Slurm database, without
additional Database HA features, like Galera, DRBD, etc etc
So the idea was to have the two Slurm server nodes, each running
slurmctld, slurmdbd, mariadb, but the two mariadb instances would be
referencing the same physical database, with only one of the Slurm nodes
doing any database updates at any one time.
Is this a possible configuration? If so, how to get both the mariadb
instances to be running simultaneously (with one idle) accessing the
same database files.
It seems silly to have two database instances on the same NFS server
replicating with something like Galera.
My first post to the list, so apologies if this is a FAQ,
My configuration has two nodes allocated for Slurm masters, with a
highly-available NFS server mounting a filesystem across the two nodes.
I need advice on the best configuration.
I naively thought of having a single MariaDB database located in the NFS
server, with slurmctld, slurmdbd and mariadb running on both slurm
nodes, with only one slurmdbd/mariadb actively touching the database at
any one time.
But MariaDB doesn't seem to like (possibly understandably) two mysql
daemons accessing a single database instance from two servers.
What would be the best way to configure this setup?
Thanks in advance
