    This is just a from own experience with Virtual Machine Replication & Failover with VMWare Server & Debian Etch (4.0)

    The script /etc/ha.d/resource.d/vmstart

    needs to be chmod to 777 to run.

    so maybe add a line to the howto that says you have to:

    chmod 777 /etc/ha.d/resource.d/vmstart

    Did you try to run the script as root?

    I checked my ha-log and had this error:

    ERROR: Cannot locate resource script vmstart

    The file permissions when I created the vmstart was 644, tried 744 but in the end found this howto which said 777

    So I went with that, I might be wrong, but its working now, only problem now is when running vmware I get these errors:

    rtc: lost some interrupts at 4096Hz.

    But that seems to be due to HPET_EMULATE_RTC not being ON in the kernel, so I'm of to compile my own :confused: might start a thread on that soon. :)
