We propose a self-stabilizing protocol for anonymous oriented bi-directional rings of any size under unfair distributed schedulers with a leader. The protocol is a randomized self-stabilizing, meaning that starting from an arbitrary configuration it converges (with probability 1) in finite time to a legitimate configuration (i.e. global system state) without the need for explicit exception handler of backward recovery. A fault may throw the system into an illegitimate configuration, but the system will autonomously resume a legitimate configuration, by regarding the current illegitimate configuration as an initial configuration, if the fault is transient. A self-stabilizing system thus tolerates any kind and any finite number of transient faults. The protocol can be used to implement an unfair distributed mutual exclusion in any ring topology network; Keywords: self-stabilizing protocol, anonymous oriented bi-directional ring, unfair distributed schedulers. Ring topology network, non-uniform and anonymous network, self-stabilization, fault tolerance, legitimate configuration.
