In dual primary setup, with ocfs2, suppose both nodes write two big files to disk big1, and big2 and syncing it between them. Then in the middle the connection between the servers goes down. What would happen then? I think they will continue to write big1, and big2 to node1 and node2. Some of the file will possibly be written on the same disk blocks. On resume one of the disks will be synced to the other node, say node1 will be synced to node2, which will possibly overwrite some of big2 with big1 blocks. Moreover some of the filesystem structures in node2 may be overwritten with big1 related filesystem structures, while some may stay intact, which may lead to some missing structures for big2. Can that happen?
