Hi Andrew,

I just found another problem with dlm_controld.pcmk (with your latest
patch from github applied and also my fixes to actually build it - they
are included in a message referenced by this one).
One node which just requested fencing of another one stucks at printing
that message where you print ctime() in fence_node_time() (pacemaker.c
near 293) every second. No other messages appear, although
fence_node_time() is called only from check_fencing_done() (cpg.c near
444). So, both of (last_fenced_time >= node->fail_time) and
(!node->fence_queries || node->fence_time != last_fenced_time) are
false, otherwise one of messages for that cases should be shown. Then,
fence_node_time() seems to return 0 from
if (wait_count)
	return 0;
(wait_count is incremented if (last_fenced_time >= node->fail_time) is
false), so it never reaches check_fencing_done() call and never return
expected 1.
Offending node was actually fenced, but that was actually not handled by

May I ask you to help me a bit with all that logic (as you already dived
into dlm_controld sources again), I seem to be so near the success... :|

btw, I cant find what source is your dlm repo forked from, may be you
