Hi Gilberto,

I Have been testing Proxmox HA without fencing device and works. I test
with 2 nodes Proxmox but have not tried with 3 nodes. I also posting in my
blog about howto :
indonesian language :D

This is my Cluster configuration
cp /etc/pve/cluster.conf /etc/pve/cluster.conf.new
nano /etc/pve/cluster.conf.new

*<?xml version="1.0"?>*
*<cluster config_version="5" name="excellent">*
*<cman expected_votes="1" keyfile="/var/lib/pve-cluster/corosync.authkey"
*<fencedevice agent="fence_manual" name="human"/>*
*<clusternode name="pve1" nodeid="1" votes="1">*
*<method name="single">*
*<device name="human" nodename="pve1"/>*
*<clusternode name="pve2" nodeid="2" votes="1">*
*<method name="single">*
*<device name="human" nodename="pve2"/>*

Note :
excellent = My Cluster name
pve1 = Hostname for Proxmox 1 (node 1)
pve2 = Hostname for Proxmox 2 (node 2)

Importan : You must edit config_version every change cluster configuration.

Next you can configure VM with clue from here :
http://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/High_Availability_Cluster and try to power off
host Proxmox.
Example :

I have VM running on Proxmox 1 (node1) and have been configured HA. Forced
off node 1 and run this command from node 2 to take over VM

fence_ack_manual pve1 (pve1 is hostname node 1)

after that, you must confirm with answer *absolutely*
