Google was unhelpful.

Google was sort of helpful after all;

NODE_FLAGS_DIRTY - This node has internal state and must not join
                   a cluster that also has state.


What does this actually imply? Anything to care about? How would this node "recover" from being dirty?


It's a perfectly normal state. in fact it's expected if you are running services. It simply means that the cluster has some services running that have state of their own that cannot be recovered without a full restart. I would be more worried if you did NOT see this in cman_tool status. It's NOT a warning. don't worry about it :)
