cman man page incorrect with regards to setting expected vote count on Red Hat Cluster Suite

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Red Hat Cluster Suite


  • The man page for cman_tool states, matter of factly, that that setting the expected vote count causes cman "to recalculate quorum based on this value"; since that's not actually what happens, the man page should be revised to more clearly state what happens.


  • The cman_tool man page is incorrect when it states that setting the expected vote causes quorum to be recalculated.  The man page needs to be fixed.
  • Run  $ cman_tool leave remove on the node being removed instead

Root Cause

  • Incorrect explanation in CMAN_TOOL(8) for the "expected" option
