Comment 5 Fabio Massimo Di Nitto 2011-07-11 04:11:32 EDT
Unit test results:

with unpatched cman-3.0.12-41.el6.x86_64

<cluster name="fabbione" config_version="1" >
  <logging debug="on"/>
  <cman>
   <multicast addr="239.192.224.34"/>
  </cman>
  <clusternodes>

[root@rhel6-node2 ~]# cman_tool nodes

   2   M     28   2011-07-11 10:09:48  rhel6-node2

nodes are now joining correctly.

Node name: rhel6-node2

Multicast addresses: 239.192.224.34

also verified that requested mcast address is in use.

[root@rhel6-node2 ~]# corosync-objctl |grep ttl
[root@rhel6-node2 ~]# 

lack of ttl in cluster.conf does not add a ttl=0 entry and leaves the default
from corosync as expected.
