hello,

First :
Can someone explain us the signification of : NA, NV, NMW in the Device column of the node when issuing a 'pvecm status' plz.
(I've read a lot, but nothing about this, seems to be new ?)

some time I have this :

Membership information
----------------------
Nodeid Votes Qdevice Name
0x00000001 1 NA,NV,NMW 10.0.1.1
0x00000002 1 NA,NV,NMW 10.0.1.2 (local)
0x00000000 0 Qdevice (votes 0)

and some time this :
Membership information
----------------------
Nodeid Votes Qdevice Name
0x00000001 1 NA,NV,NMW 10.0.1.1
0x00000002 1 NR 10.0.1.2 (local)
0x00000000 0 Qdevice (votes 0)

Second : is it normal than the last line (Qdevice (votes 0) appear, when I have delete the Qdevice.net

thanks in advance.

ok, thanks a lot.
i ll read your like because actually, our cluster look like that :
Membership information
----------------------
Nodeid Votes Qdevice Name
0x00000001 1 A,NV,NMW 10.0.1.1
0x00000002 1 A,NV,NMW 10.0.1.2 (local)
0x00000000 0 Qdevice (votes 1)

so i it seems no one vote, and no one is master ?? strange.
(and still this funkin Qdevice no vote)

Those abbreviation are always regarding the QDevice

A or NA -> QDevice Alive or Not Alive
V or NV -> QDevice cast Vote or No Vote
MW or NMW -> QDevice set so Master Wins or No Master Wins
NR -> QDevice Not Registered

Thank you very much, gentlemen,
you have allowed me to understand details that I was missing and therefore to concentrate my efforts in the right direction to solve my problem of qdevice that was not voting (opening of the tcp port 5403).

Proxmox is really a fantastic solution: great product and great community, the winning couple.

good evening
