Xsan 10.9.4 does not add clients 10.8.5
Good Evening brave Xsan deployers
Last year i built an Xsan of 120 TB in 3x volumes, 2x 10.9.1 servers with 6x clients 10.8.5, working flawless (except for the random failover issue)
Two months ago, i upgraded both the MDC servers at 10.9.4 to get rid of the famous bug (finally !!! ), and added a MacPro 2013 with 10.9.4. No problem so far.
Today, i reinitialised one of the clients with 10.8.5 for some issues with Adobe suite, after removing it from the Xsan system regularly But now, after putting back everything where it was (Name, IP, DNS, and activating the Xsan client), The computer does not appear in the list of the Xsan Admin when i want to add it, no matter what i do.
The DNS respond with absolute perfection on both public and metadata network
The LUN are perfectly seen in the Disk Utility
Already canceled and recreated the Xsan dir into the Library/Preferences of the client. The uuid file is generated, but still nothing.
The other 5x clients 10.8.5 are working, but i don't know what will happen if i remove them from the Xsan. I still cannot test on another mac 10.8.5 if the problem repeat itself, because the system is in production.
I will try, eventually, to upgrade the client to 10.9.4 and check if, like this, it will be added to the Xsan system.
Is this a bug any of you experienced?
Maybe an upgrade to the 10.9.5 will solve it?
A curious fact:
When i open the Xsan Admin to add the computer, it ask me to install the Xsan 2 on the computer i want to add, and prepare the serial number........ what ?????
Thanks a lot for any help
