I'm having some problem with configuren load-balanced mysql-cluster setup. I've followed the setps in How to set up A load-balanced Mysql Cluster. The first problem is with hearbeat. A get te following error: Code: heartbeat: 2006/10/06_16:00:01 ERROR: mcast [eth0] bad addr [255.0.0.1] heartbeat: 2006/10/06_16:00:01 ERROR: Illegal directive [respawm] in /etc/ha.d/ha.cf heartbeat: 2006/10/06_16:00:01 ERROR: Heartbeat not started: configuration error. heartbeat: 2006/10/06_16:00:01 ERROR: Configuration error, heartbeat not started. when I comment these lines out in the ha.cf heartbeat will start and it looks like the load-balancers are running and all tests in the how-to are showing the right response. But when I want te connect from a other mahine with a mysql-client, I can't connect. After a portscan on the virtual ip of the loadbalancer I see that te mysql port is filtered (I'm not using a firewall). I've really no idea what is wrong? And if the first problem affects the second problem that I can't connect. This is my ha.cf file: Code: logfacility local0 bcast eth0 mcast eth0 255.0.0.1 694 1 0 auto_failback off node loadb1 node loadb2 respawm hacluster /usr/lib/heartbeat/ipfail apiauth ipfail gid=haclient uid=hacluster Some help will be very nice!
