Hi, Jiaju

I am trying behavior of revoke Implementation manually.

I have questions of revoke.

If I revoked in one of grant ticket site, It would be free from grant
but the other site runs automatic failover after that!
Is it correct specifications?

I think the expire timer is free in all of sites in that operation.
What do you think about that?

I can't find anything of booth articles in that links.
Is it right the links of the novell bugzilla?

Best Regards, Taihun
