Hi Darryl,

I'm still experimenting with my oVirt installation so I tried to
recreate the problems you've described.

My setup has three HA hosts for virtualization and three machines
for the gluster replica 3 setup.

I manually migrated the Engine from the initial install host (one)
to host three. Then shut down host one manually and interrupted the
fencing mechanisms so the host stayed down. This didn't bother the
Engine VM at all.

To make things a bit more challenging I then shut down host three
while running the Engine VM. Of course the Engine was down for some
time until host two detected the problem. It started the Engine VM
and everything seems to be running quite well without the initial
install host.

My only problem is that the HA agent on host two and three refuse to
start after a reboot due to the fact that the configuration of the
hosted engine is missing. I wrote another mail to users@ovirt.org
about that.
