RE: [Linux-cluster] DLM locks with 1 node on 2 node cluster



I checked that I have to following in the cluster.conf
<cman expected_votes="1" two_nodes="1">

I also checked that I do not loose the quorum with one node:

[root bof227] clustat
Member Status: Quorate

  Member Name                              Status
  ------ ----                              ------
  bof227                                   Online, Local, rgmanager
  bof226                                   Offline

You're probably not using cman's two_node setting which means the one node
by itself will be blocked by quorum.  When you do a 'cman_tool leave
remove', that reduces the votes required for quorum, so it's not a problem
for the remaining node.  Try using the two_node mode as described here:
