This story line seems to be missing some points. How did you cut off
the network connection? What leads you to believe the OSDs accepted
writes on both sides of the split? Did you edit the monmap in both
data centers, or just DC A (that you wanted to remain alive)? What
monitor counts do you have in each DC?
