I am testing failover of Xen VM services on a 3-node Cluster Suite install. To begin, I just did a reboot of node-1, that had one VM service running. The VM service was migrated as part of the node shutdown.
Okay, now for something more severe. I started node-1 again, and migrated that same VM service back there. This time, I did a hard poweroff of the node. The VM service showed state "stopping" in clustat, as the node showed "Offline". I left the node powered off for about 10 minutes, but the VM service never got migrated or restarted on the other nodes of the cluster.
I then powered on node-1. The VM service started back up on node-3, which is the preferred node for it's failover domain.
Shouldn't that VM service restart automatically even while node-1 was down?
Thanks for help.
