Thanks - this should be helpful. Part of the reason I was worrying
about this is seeing some strange behavior I (at first) thought was
configuration related but presumably is not. I had configured a two
node ctdb cluster with the node below's ctdbd.conf configured as:
$ ctdb status
Number of nodes:2
pnn:0 172.29.161.26 OK
pnn:1 172.29.161.45 OK (THIS NODE)
Recovery mode:NORMAL (0)
I am certain that CTDB_CAPABILITY_RECMASTER is set to no on that node
(and not set to anything on the other node) but it is still becoming
recovery master which I found confusing.
