    Hello,

    how can i disable the build in fencing in Proxmox 5.2 ?

    I have some weird problems and i would perfer a "stuck" system (do be able to debug it) than a fenced one.

    Thanks,
    Mario

    Fencing is only active, when you configure HA VM/CTs

    You can set the noboot option for the softdog if you do not use a hardware watchdog, but this is dangerous and should not be done on production machines.
    Fencing is there for a reason, do ensure there is no competive access to shared resources which may then get corrupted easily.

    We try to sync down all logs before stopping watchdog updates, so that should let you see the reason, or its general direction, for the hang/failure.
