Hi everyone,

This is a little off-topic but is drbd related -
Just wondering: since the (main?) purpose of STONITH is to prevent
simultaneous access of a shared disk, and drbd can't be mounted
primary/primary (certainly that should not happen 'accidentally' by
heartbeat anyway, save perhaps a split-brain), what might be the use of
stonith on a drbd-based setup with heartbeat?

Does anyone have a need for using stonith with their drbd setup that they
might share with the group?
