Recommendation for 1-2 node cluster

RSCT requires that at least one other adapter in the network exists, so that packets can be exchanged between the local and remote adapter. Without such an adapter, a local adapter would be unable to receive any packets. Therefore, there would be no way to confirm that the local adapter is working. Therefore we recommend to add machine names to file /usr/sbin/cluster/netmon.cf on each cluster node. These machines should be routers or any machines that are external to the configuration, but are reachable from one of the networks being monitored by the subsystem. Any entry in this file is used as a target for a probing packet when RSCT is attempting to determine the health of a local adapter. The format of the file is as follows:

machine name or IP address 1
machine name or IP address 2
.........

Where the IP addresses are in dotted decimal format. If the file does not exist, it should be created. To remove this recovery action, remove the entries added to the file, delete the file, or rename the file.
