Re: [Linux-cluster] How to take down a CS/GFS setup with minimum downtime



Thanks for this Lon, I'm down to the last two node members and according
to cman_tool status I have two nodes, two votes and a quorum of two.
--
Nodes: 2
Expected_votes: 5
Total_votes: 2
Quorum: 2   
--

One of those nodes has the GFS filesystems mounted.
If I issue cman_tool leave remove on the other node will I run into any
problems on the GFS mounted node ? (for example, due to quorum)
