[Linux-cluster] RHEL4AS w/ cvs RHEL4 branch

Thanks for the quick reply.

Yes, my cluster.conf contains this line (required in two node cluster
<cman two_node="1" expected_votes="1">

There's also a fencing messages on the surviving node, saying that the 
failed node should be restarted before any recovery can proceed. Waiting

for the node to rejoin the cluster or manual acknowledgement...

Does this mean that I cannot use the surviving node to host my resources
while my other node is fenced? 

Clustat says that my cluster is still qourate even with one node

Please enlighten me.

Do you have this in your cluster.conf?

  <cman two_node="1" expected_votes="1">

If not, then the live node will lose quorum when you kill the other node
and it won't do anything until the failed node has rejoined the cluster.

If you already have that in cluster.conf, then is there a manual fencing
message in /var/log/messages on the live node?
