Subject Re: cluster member was switched to standalone, detectable?
Date Fri, 18 May 2012 20:55:16 GMT
Do the four-letter words tell me if a service joined the quorum correctly?
What commands and responses will tell me?

How do I know what cluster it joined? What if nodes X & Y are in cluster A
but Z is in cluster B, should there be a cluster identifier to distinguish
membership?
