Thanks Marc and Jos for your pieces of advice, but
it does not seems to work:

I tried your first suggestion with qdisk votes=2 and expected_votes=3:

        <quorumd interval="1" tko="10" votes="2" log_level="9"
log_facility="local4" status_file="/tmp/qdisk_status" label="CS4QUORUMDISK">
     <clusternode name="node0" votes="1">
     <clusternode name="node1" votes="1">
     <cman expected_votes="3" two_node="0"/>

and I can't start cman on only one node, it needs cman on second node to be
started, and I don't understand why ...

I tried (just to give it a try because I would have not understood if it had
worked!) also qdisk votes=2 and expected_votes=2, but same result...

Each times, in file "messages" , I see Cluster Inquorate :
Sep 26 15:04:40 s_sys at bali0 ccsd[12224]: Connected to cluster infrastruture via:
CMAN/SM Plugin v1.1.7.4
Sep 26 15:04:40 s_sys at bali0 ccsd[12224]: Initial status:: Inquorate

until the cman of second node is started and then :
Sep 26 15:07:01 s_sys at bali0 ccsd[12224]: Cluster is quorate.  Allowing connections.

I have read and read again the FAQ page, especially the # you mention, but
don't understand why it does not work for me ...
Except if my quorum disk is not working ?
But command mkqisk returns :
#mkqdisk -L
mkqdisk v0.5.1
        Magic:   eb7a62c2
        Label:   CS4QUORUMDISK
        Created: Tue Sep 18 16:33:40 2007
        Host:    node
but is it sufficient to know if Quorum disk is working correctly ?

Any new clue or suggestion is welcome.
