Env: rhevm-3.0.0_0001-18.el6.x86_64, vdsm-4.9-84.el6.x86_64
1 host in the data center, 1 iscsi storage domain, blocking traffic to the storage using iptables
vdsmd stopped and does not start, it becomes defunct for ~30 seconds
[root@stone-vds1 ~]# ps -ww `pgrep vdsm`
PID TTY STAT TIME COMMAND
8981 ? S< 0:00 /usr/bin/python /usr/share/vdsm//vdsm
8983 ? S< 0:00 /usr/bin/python /usr/share/vdsm//vdsm
24820 ? Z<l 0:21 [vdsm] <defunct>
(this is yet untested, but I'm considering to retry starting vdsm even the first try after fencing fails.)
After a defunct vdsm continues to run.
