> Hi all,
> I have a setup with one master and one slave.  At rare cases I see that the master is detached and its partner is slave attached.  How come the master became detached without causing a failover.  When I try to detach a master manually it causes failover as expected.  What might be the scenario that caused it to me master detached without failover

You can set backend_flag0 = 'ALLOW_TO_FAILOVER' or something like that
to prevent a fail over. See the manual for more details.
