Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 317561
Clarify qdisk man page
Last modified: 2015-04-19 20:47:20 EDT
Description of problem:
In qdisk(5), 1.4. Limitations, the sixth bullet item (starting with "For
â€™all-but-oneâ€™ failure operation, the total number of votes...") needs
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
* Cluster nodes must have one vote each. The effects of nodes having
any number of votes besides 1 has not been explored.
* For 'all-but-one' failure operation, the total number of votes assigned to the
quorum device should be equal to the number of nodes in the cluster minus 1.
For example, if you have 3 nodes in the cluster, qdiskd should get 2 votes.
This then lets the cluster operate without qdisk if all nodes are online for
testing and other purposes.
