Hi guys, I'm running a Master-Master configuration on a GFS2 partition. Could someone please give me some advice regarding fencing? I see that if I power down one of my Master's then GFS2 starts logging these: Sep 28 19:25:41 server2 fenced: fencing node "server2" Sep 28 19:25:41 server2 fenced: fence "server2" failed Once that happens, I am unable to access the partition on server1 (the remaining one), until I run: fence_ack_manual -n server2 Is there a way to automate this? I know it's very risky when server2 isn't really dead. Does DRBD have it's own fencing over and above GFS2 in which case I can discard GFS2's fencing? I'd like to do load balancing with automatic failover in case one of the masters die, but the fencing is the only thing still in the way of that. Thanks, Pieter Steyn
