1. have both nodes running as cluster members using the original

2. on one node, update /etc/cluster/cluster.conf, incrementing

3. on this same node run "killall -HUP ccsd"

4. verify that the new cluster.conf exists on both nodes

5. on this same node run "cman_tool -r <new config_version>"

6. check /proc/cluster/status to verify the new config version

I just tried this and it works with the current code in cvs.  If it fails
for you you may need to update (which probably requires upgrading both
nodes together making it a moot point.)
