Hi list,

Sorry for the noise, but I thought posting my results with the update to 
RHEL5.2 would be of interest to a few of you.

The node that has been updated to RHEL5.2 seems to operate very nicely 
in the cluster so far. After a boot it did rejoin the cluster, and got 
back its affinity assigned service.

Quorum disk operations resumed after a bit too.

The only warning sign I can see is this output from cman_tool status :

# cman_tool status
Version: 6.1.0
Config Version: 39
Cluster Name: cluster_clustername
Cluster Id: 19444
Cluster Member: Yes

What does "Flags: Dirty" mean? Is it anything to worry about?
Google was unhelpful.
