Thanks Kaleb,

indeed, starting ganesha without HA works, but it's certainly not 
desirable, and everything is back to manual operations like in the old days.
Do you have any time estimate for storhaug to be ready? Maybe it's worth 
to mention this in the documentation of 3.12 as well, otherwise other 
people will have the same problems.
