Re: [Linux-cluster] Cluster Crashes



Ah, I knew I wasn't crazy. And no, I was not just removing storage and 
wondering why things crashed :).

Yes, I'm now using older but useful QLA2200 cards on each node. I'm also using 
Brocade switches, a 2800 and 2400's without fabric zones.

I'll have to peek at the logs the next time it happens, don't have any handy 
at this point.
