Cluster Configuration for SBD STONITH Device
Since SLE 11 SP4 and SLE12 a new parameter "pcmk_delay_max" has been introduces to minimize the risk of dual fencing in two node clusters.
We now recommend this new parameter instead of the former "start_delay" option.
primitive sbd_stonith stonith:external/sbd params pcmk_delay_max="15" \ op monitor interval="15" timeout="15"
The next update of the best practices and white papers will integrate this new recommendation.
