Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Why using only ring1 name in pcmk_host_list doesn't work when trying the fence node and messages similar to following are observed in logs?

    node1 stonith-ng:   notice: stonith_choose_peer:    Couldn't find anyone to fence (reboot) node2 with any device
  • Can I use the ring1 or any other name for fencing the nodes?
