"volume stop force" not stopping the volume when server quorum not met
Last modified: 2016-07-14 01:50:14 EDT
Description of problem:
Had a 4 node cluster with distributed volume with server quorum enabled and server quorum ratio set to 90 and brought down one of the node and tried to stop the volume using force option, volume stop not happening and it's failing with error message "quorum not met"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a four node cluster
2.Create and start a distributed volume and set the quorum ratio to 90 and enable the server side quorum.
3.Stop glusterd in one of cluster node
4.From one of glusterd running node, try to stop the volume using force option // it won't stop and fail with error message "Quorum not met"
volume stop with force option is not stopping the volume when server quorum not met.
Volume stop with force option should stop the volume when quorum not met.

When quorum is not met, volume becomes non-operational and in that case do we really mind to stop the volume? IMO, this is not a bug given there is no use case which demands bypassing the quorum check here. I am closing this bug with this explanation, feel free to reopen if you think otherwise with proper justifications.
