Hi Craig,

thanks for answer. I'm using replications - which is working ok,
volume is mounted using -t glusterfs parameter, does it matter ?
All nodes are using real IP's not virtual ( for probing etc ) , i'm
using virtual only for mounting volume on client. I was waiting over
10 minutes for volume
to "wake up" but it never start to work - it never switch to another
node, even when UCARP was already pointing there, there was lot
of "recovery" messages on log but no attemt to connect to second node.

thanks

Matus
