Yep, as per the NFS portion of the HOWTO, /var/lib/nfs -> /nfsstate/var/lib/nfs and nfsstate is one of the drbd controlled devices on both systems. http://www.slackworks.com/~dkrovich/DRBD/heartbeat.html#AEN151 currently I do not have either of the problems described in 'drbd/documentation/NFS-Server-README.txt'. I will be playing with the state of statd/lockd today and see if it causes either of those problems. the current state (after just following the HOWTO), is statd is up at boot (rc3.d/S14nfslock), but nfs is not started until heartbeat is (rc3.d/S75heartbeat) and statd is not currently controlled by heartbeat. > > ...

Could you, or anyone else, point me to an online version of the "nfsserver" script that you use? That is the "nfsserver" called out in the /etc/ha.d/haresources sub section of nfs integration in the drbd HOWTO: http://www.slackworks.com/~dkrovich/DRBD/heartbeat.html#AEN151 I think a good deal of my confusion comes from that script not being overtly available for comparison with what redhat has. The way it is used in the documentation it looks like the person writing it thought everyone had a copy, so I believe it is from a particular distribution which I happen not to be using. > > -Philipp -- Todd Denniston Crane Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC Crane) Harnessing the Power of Technology for the Warfighter
