Re: [Linux-cluster] How to avoid two-nodes clustersplit-brain withoutshared storage



Look up "quorum disk". You can add a heuristic based on ping or just about any other shell command. The heuristic acts like a ghost node toward quorum. 
An actual disk is not needed.

Hi Barry Brimer,

Thanks your suggestion.
'tiebreaker ip', I searched the cluster documents, and only find the
definition of 'tiebreaker ip', but there is no description on how to
configure it.
Could you give some more detail about how to configure it.
