Subject Re: When is decomissioning done?
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2008 08:56:04 GMT
I'm starting to think I'm doing things wrong.

I have an absolute path to dfs.hosts.exclude that includes what i want
decommissioned, and a dfs.hosts which includes those i want to remain
commissioned (this points to the slaves file).

Nothing seems to do anything...

What am I missing?
