Demonstrate how to remove a node from an active cluster without any rebooting. This technique applies to clusters using OCFS2 1.8 and after. The cluster must use global, not local, heartbeats.
The procedure may be needed if the on-disk state information for OCFS2, contained in the file /etc/ocfs2/cluster.conf, becomes out of sync with the in-memory OCFS2 state contained in the /sys/kernel/config/cluster/<cluster-name>/node/ virtual file system maintained by the OCFS2 file handler. Normally these data sources are kept in-sync but should an unexpected system event such as a storage power loss occur, the two states may become inconsistent.
