Description Adam "mantis" Manthei 2004-10-14 14:31:18 EDT
Description of problem:
The lock_gulmd init.d service script should fail to start if gulm does
not find quorom within a set period of time.  This timeout period
should be configurable so that users can adjust how long to wait
before failing.  Options should include something along the lines of
"wait indefinately", "don't wait" and "wait for X seconds".

This is needed in order to prevent services requiring quorom (such as
mounting GFS) to hang when quorom is not possible.  For example,
without this feature, machines disconnected from an ethernet switch
will not be able to boot since quorom can never be established.

The default timeout will probably be set to 5 minutes.  If after the
timeout period gulm is still not quorate, it will terminate the localy
running lock_gulmd process and report a failure.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GFS-6.0.0-15 and earlier
