Hi all, I'm building a Loadbalanced HA Apache Cluster following the HOW-TO from Falko. I've done everything as he explained just changing my nodenames and IP's, and it all seems to be fine, but when I start heartbeat on both loadb servers, they both become active, when they're supposed to be one active and the other on hot-standby. I've checked config files a thousand times and I can't guess what's going wrong. Below I attach my config files on load balancers. LOADB1 & LOADB2 (as config files must be identical) /etc/ha.d/ha.conf Code: logfacility local0 bcast eth0 mcast eth0 126.96.36.199 694 1 0 auto_failback on node loadb1.mydomain.com node loadb2.mydomain.com respawn hacluster /usr/lib/heartbeat/ipfail apiauth ipfail gid=haclient uid=hacluster /etc/ha.d/haresources Code: loadb1.mydomain.com ldirectord::ldirectord.cf LVSSyncDaemonSwap::master IPaddr2::xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/27/eth0/nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn (Where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the VIP and nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn the network address) /etc/ha.d/ldirectord.cf Code: checktimeout=10 checkinterval=2 autoreload=no logfile="local0" quiescent=yes virtual=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:80 real=yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy:80 gate real=zzz.zzz.zzz.zzz:80 gate fallback=127.0.0.1:80 gate service=http request="ldirector.html" receive="Test Page" scheduler=rr protocol=tcp checktype=negotiate (yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy and zzz.zzz.zzz.zzz are the apache nodes) That's the output a few seconds after I started heartbeat on both servers: Loadb1 Code: # ip addr sh eth0 2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,10000> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast qlen 1000 link/ether 00:17:08:50:3e:f6 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff inet aaa.aaa.aaa.aaa/27 brd nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn scope global eth0 inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/27 brd nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn scope global secondary eth0 inet6 fe80::217:8ff:fe50:3ef6/64 scope link valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever Loadb2 Code: # ip addr sh eth0 2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,10000> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast qlen 1000 link/ether 00:16:35:5c:f8:f4 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff inet bbb.bbb.bbb.bbb/27 brd nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn scope global eth0 inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/27 brd nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn scope global secondary eth0 inet6 fe80::217:8ff:fe50:3ef6/64 scope link valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever (aaa.aaa.aaa.aaa and bbb.bbb.bbb.bbb are the adrresses for loadb1 and loadb2). My OS is Fedora Core 5 on all servers (load balancers and apache nodes). Please anyone can help me? Thanks in advance.
