Subject Quorum: killing 1 out of 3 server kills the cluster (?)
Date Thu, 09 Dec 2010 15:40:36 GMT

I've 3 servers running (0.7rc1) with a replication_factor of 2 and use quorum for writes.
But when I shut down one of them UnavailableExceptions are thrown. Why is that? Isn't that
the sense of quorum and a fault-tolerant DB that it continues with the remaining 2 nodes and
redistributes the data to the broken one as soons as its up again?

What may I be doing wrong?
