    Hello everyone,
    following the (great) howto I've been able to get the MySQL cluster up and running flawlessy, but I found some problems configuring UltraMonkey.

    I followed the howto step by step (aka "cut and paste") and all check commands are replying as expected with a notable exception: if i disable ldirectord as a daemon I can't see weights shifting with "ipvsadm -L -n" (both servers are weight 0) like this:

    IP Virtual Server version 1.2.1 (size=4096)
    Prot LocalAddress:Port Scheduler Flags
      -> RemoteAddress:Port           Forward Weight ActiveConn InActConn
    TCP wrr
      ->           Local   0      0          0
      ->           Route   0      0          0
    If i issue a "/etc/init.d/ldirectord start" weights start shifting as expected as one or the other server fails.

    My real problem is that if I stop the MySQL sql node on the active master I can't connect to the database anymore, thus not routing requests to the backup sql node.

    I can see in the output of ipvsadm the correct server weights (mysql stopped weight 0, the active one weight 1)

    Any suggestions?
    I can provide logs and/or conf files if you need them.

    Thank you for your time in advance

    Are there any errors in your logs?

    No, it doesn't report any error in logs...
    I found out that if I'm trying to connect from a third server the whole system works as expected.

    I take it that the service isn't balanced when one of the hosting servers is trying to access it. I have only 2 servers in my setup, with a web application (that resides on the same servers) accessing the database cluster.
    Do you think is possible to have a failover cluster with only 2 servers or I must have at least 3?

    What IP address does your web application use to connect to MySQL? It should be the virtual IP address.

    Yes, in my setup i have (192.168.0...) .11 and .12 as SQL interfaces and .15 as virtual IP for the balanced mysql to listen to.
    Now if i shutdown mysql on server .11 and try connect to server .15 i get the "unable to connect" error...
    Probably that's happening because of the lo:0 interface I configured
