Hi, I'm currently building a system with two primary nodes with ocfs2 on top of drbd. These two nodes are going to sync with each other through a dedicated cable, connected to eth1 on both sides. Since they will be both running primary, and being part of a load-balancing cluster, I was wondering how to determine if some host has really died on disconnect. E.g. the cable on eth1 gets disconnected, both hosts will still be available through eth0, thus load-balancing continues to happen. Of course, this is very bad behaviour and both hosts will get almost inconsistent data immediately. I would think that there should be some ping check through the other interface to ensure the other host has died completely, and if it's still reachable, one host should get the inconsistent status (or even panic). Or are there other ways to do what I want? Regards, Joost
