-In addition to the cman-specific sections, cman also loads in configuration for openAIS from CCS from the following keys:
-
-<totem>
-<logging>
-<event>
-<aisexec>
-<group>
+When openais is started by cman (cman_tool runs aisexec), the openais.conf
+file is not used.  Many of the configuration parameters listed in
+openais.conf can be set in cluster.conf (CCS) instead.  Cman will read
+openais parameters from the following sections in cluster.conf and load
+them into openais:
+
+  <cluster>
+    <totem />
+    <logging />
+    <event />
+    <aisexec />
+    <group />
+  </cluster>
 
 See the 
 .B openais.conf(5)
-man page for more information on keys that are valid for these sections. 
-Note that the <clusternodes> section will overwrite things in these sections 
-and options on the cman_tool command line will override both. 
-In particular setting things like bindnetaddr, mcastaddr, mcastport & 
-nodeid in this section will always be replaced by the values in <clusternodes>.

-Several openais.conf items are overridden by cman by default. You can still change
-these in cluster.conf but the defaults are different from those documented in
-the openais.conf(5) man page. They are:

+Cman uses different defaults for some of the openais parameters listed in
+openais.conf(5).  If you wish to use a non-default setting, they can be
+configured in cluster.conf as shown above.  Cman uses the following
+default values:
 
   <totem
-   vsftype="none"
-   token="10000"
-   token_retransmits_before_loss_const="20"
-   join="60"
-   consensus="4800"
-   rrp_mode="none"
-   <!-- or rrp_mode="active" if altnames are present >
-   />
-   <logging syslog_facility="local4" />
-   <aisexec user="root" group="root" />
-
-cman does not use the openais.conf file at all. What it does do is 
-load the values from CCS into internal OpenAIS data structures that 
-map onto the entries to openais.conf. So that's why you can add an 
-entry in a <totem> section in CCS and it will be used by totem.
