Thanis thank you for that clarification....Again I cannot thank you enough for taking your time to respond to my silly inquiries....so you could use drbd and heartbeat on the same nic right? I assume performance will take a hit? so in your howto your using drbd via crossover cable between the nodes...right?
I will try and play with it again hopefully this weekend... So if /var/vm is not mount.. is there a way to find out why... I keep getting this error in the vmware-server-console when trying to start the vm, it keeps saying the file is not registered, run some register -s command... Sorry I am not in front of the nodes right now....but no matter what i did even copying the command it told me to run, it was not working. Any advice on what I missed that may have caused the error?
In your last response you mentioned a faulty vmware install, but i have installed vmware on etch several times using the same howto you referenced and have never had any problems with it...? Not sure if it is indeed vmware install related...If it is, can you give some insight as to what about the install may not be proper?
I am really trying to get this going with xen as well. I would like to try and do this with hardy 8.04, since howtoforge has a howto on this... And since ubuntu includes the newest xen packages, and has drbd intergrated(version 8 i think..), I think this would be ideal to have a primary-primary setup for a live migration configuration. using these as a base of sorts...
Thanis, do you think its possible? if so, do you have any suggestions...?If you or anyone else would like to help me put a howto together for this, I would be eternally greatful..thanks again for your response. I really look forward to hearing the responses.
