the echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger; command works fine the node with
this command reboot thank to the fence-peer :) in a scenary without
"fencing race", how the cluster take a decisition about what node
reboot in the cable disconnection test?
One question you think drbd works better in a pacemaker or cman environment?

Your english is good, i preffer talk in spanish :P sorry for my bad
english ever i learn so much thanks to this thread

You never say me nothing about my delay fence line
<fence_daemon clean_start="0" post_fail_delay="10" post_join_delay="30"/>

Digimer And Emmanuel Thanks a lot for your help and patience
