Well... you can set one of the 2 as an observer. That way you can have a quorum of one of 2, but you can't have a quorum of the other of two. Probably not what you want.
You can also set up a third member who refuses to become leader. They basically serve as a tiebreaker. You can lighten the load on the tiebreaker by not allowing clients to connect.

Interestingly, we had a server kernel crash a few days ago which meant that we only had two nodes up out of three. Which makes me wonder if three is really a suboptimal cluster size. Perhaps 5 is a better odd number. On Sep 12, 2012 12:24 PM, "Eric Pederson" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:
