RE: [Linux-cluster] really reliable?



How long is long when waiting for the fencing part to complete?  For you guys, what is the normal amount of time that it takes for "Starting fencing..." to complete?  For me, it takes anywhere from 30-45 seconds to complete.  Would this be because I'm on Cisco switches?  If this is normal then I'm just going to leave it be because it does complete and my cluster forms just fine, it just sits there with these messages repeated for 30-45 seconds:

Ryan,

Anything suspicious in the log when it hangs at fencing ?
Could you show your cluster.conf ?
