I'm aware, my point was simply that we should state, up-front in 220.127.116.11 *and* where we document synchronous_standby_names, that it requires at least three servers to be involved to be a workable solution. Perhaps we should even log a warning if only one value is found in synchronous_standby_names... Thanks, Stephen
