Who? Before the client is connected, or before the MGS is connected?
Of course the client can't do something before it is connected? But the
MGS is connected in the sense that it is mounted and responsive - I can
do a fresh client mount of this system any time.
Maybe that's more semantics than Lustre. In any case, I am  reassured by
your comments, in particular since the cluster is doing fine in this
