......@@ -149,6 +149,10 @@ This command will fail over all instances having the given node as
primary to their secondary nodes. This works only for instances having
a drbd disk template.
Note that failover will stop any running instances on the given node and
restart them again on the new primary.
See also FAILOVER in **gnt-instance**\(8).
Normally the failover will check the consistency of the disks before
failing over the instance. If you are trying to migrate instances off
a dead node, this will fail. Use the ``--ignore-consistency`` option
