to make sure your cluster meets the minimum consistency, sheepdog
recommended you to have 3 or more nodes. but if you want to have only 2
nodes in the cluster and don't want to make cluster I/O halt when one node
die, you should use '-m unsafe' as an option when format the cluster.

and as far as i know, there's still no way to change that mode while the
cluster is running.
