Hi Darren,

There are better mechanisms in corosync and Pacemaker for handling two
node clusters now while still maintaining quorum.

In corosync 2, we have the two_node: 1 setting for votequorum, which
ensures that a two node cluster doesn't suffer split brain (fencing is
required for this to work properly).

There is an explanation for how this works here:


Somewhat related, there used to be the start-delay meta parameter which
could be set for example for sbd stonith resources, to make a
double-fencing scenario less likely. This has now been replaced by the
pcmk_delay_max parameter. For an example of how to use this, see this
pull request for sbd:
