I know this is the wrong list for this question, but the pgpool list doesnt appear to be working currently.
I am hoping someone on this list can point me to an answer.
I have a fairly (I thought) straightforward pgpool setup, the backend is
postrgresql database that is streaming to a hot standby. I am testing
the failover, but when I shutdown the primary database instance and open
the standby database instance for read/write, i get this message.
"health check failed on node 0 but failover is disallowed for the node".
What setting am I missing here?
