Thanks for the quick replies! This solution should work fine, and it's quite simple. Tomorrow I'll try it. Thanks for the help. =D RM -----Original Message----- From: Martin Bene [mailto:martin.bene at icomedias.com] Sent: quarta-feira, 22 de Agosto de 2007 15:34 To: Rui Meireles; drbd-user at linbit.com Subject: AW: [DRBD-user] DRBH/HeartBeat and CROND Hi, > I've sucessfully installed DRBD and HeartBeat in 2 servers using a > Primary/Secondary configuration. > > Is there any way for me to start/stop ONLY the "root crontab" > and the "user1 crontab" with heartbeat? I've aproached this in a slightly differnet manner: Cron is active on both nodes, crontab is identical on both nodes. But: contab entries check that a directory on the drbd volume exists, so the jobs only execute on the primary host. Example (drbd provides a filesystem that gets mounted as /usr/www) 8 * * * * nobody test -d /usr/www/apache && wget -O /dev/null -q http://cms.example.com/cms/cache_purge.php For my setup that seems to me much easier that fiddling with differnet crontabs or having multiple cron daemons.
