Description Nick Strugnell 2007-12-19 11:22:28 UTC
Description of problem:
The cman man page states that broadcast is the default heartbeat mechanism
unless multicast is explicitly chosen. This is no longer true.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man cman
2. look at section 'Multicast Network Configuration'
Actual results:
Section reads:
Multicast network configuration
       Cman can be configured to use multicast instead of broadcast (broadcast
is used by default if no multicast  parameters
       are given.) 

Expected results:
According to http://sourceware.org/cluster/faq.html#broadcastmulticast, the
OpenAIS-based cman is multicast-only and broadcast cannot be configured at all.

This was fixed in CVS on 22nd August 2007. revision 1.7

Comment 2 Nick Strugnell 2007-12-19 12:58:27 UTC
ok - so scheduled for 5.2?

Comment 3 Christine Caulfield 2007-12-19 13:11:14 UTC
I hope so. There are quite a lot of man page changes since that version.

Comment 4 Nate Straz 2007-12-19 13:44:56 UTC
It needs flags if it is going to make it into 5.2.
