Hi Lists,

I found an odd behavior about remote fencing.

In the following case, stonithd on DC node adds the timeout for remote fencing
(1) the target node is DC.
(2) the target node is not DC, but DC node has no STONITH plugin.

But it doesn't add that timeout in the following case.
(i) the target node is not DC, and all STONITH plugins fail on DC node.

Is it an expected behavior or a bug?

When all STONITH operations on all nodes in the cluster failed,
maybe no action can be executed forever because transition timeout in tengine
is going to be removed...

Best Regards,
