In this paper, the authors examine steps to system reconfiguration in a distributed database using some fault tolerance scheme for a distributed database system that is compatible with respect to system failure i.e. normal transaction processing is carried out assuming that no failure will occur, but if failure is suspected at some stage or site then a system reconfiguration is undertaken. The reconfiguration and system transaction are guaranteed as long as there exists a majority of working sites belonging to the same database.
