Im really just trying to understand the process at this stage. We are testing to then run a xen server on the primary, with all the virtual servers running on that primary, but with a low level secondary as failover if/when that happens. So, when something does happen, i was thinking of writing a some scripts to do the failover, rather than heartbeat, as it entails shutting down and starting up each virtual server - which takes some time anyway. I would greatly appreciate the lists comments here? Thanks Simon
