Re: [Linux-cluster] linux-cluster



Hi Digimer,

Could you please give me reference/case studies of problem about why manual fencing was dropped and how automated fencing is fixing those?

Thanks,
Parvez

If its former - go for manual fencing. You wont need fence device but
failover wont be automatic

*Please* don't do this. Manual fencing support was dropped for a reason. It's *far* too easy to mess things up when an admin uses it before identifying a problem.


If its later - yes you'll need fence device

This is the only sane option; Academic or production. Fencing is an integral part of the cluster and you do yourself no favour by not learning it in an academic setup.
