Now I suppose that with write quorum you will mark one of the two nodes dead and use only the other one. So you declare the "writes in flight" of the dead node failed and the upper layer must redo them. So can I simulate this behaviour with heartbeat and fencing (I am in a lucky case because I use drbd as an iscsi target so the "upper layer" is the iscsi client on another server which can do multipathing on the two nodes) ?
