This is the next DRBD-MC beta release 0.6.0. DRBD-MC is a Java GUI that 
helps to configure DRBD/Pacemaker/Corosync/Openais/Heartbeat clusters. It is 
compatible with Heartbeat 2.1.3 to the latest and greatest Pacemaker with 
both communication stacks and DRBD 8.

Along couple of visual improvements, some missing Pacemaker options and some 
bugs were fixed. I think that now is about the time, when although you can 
still shoot yourself in the foot with DRBD-MC while configuring and managing 
your cluster, you would probably shoot yourself more without it. :-)

This release includes something that will be GUI for cluster-aware virtual 
machines. It is now possible to set some attributes and see some hardware of 
VMs if you have some on your cluster. Here is the screenshot:


You can get DRBD-MC here:


You can start it with help of Java Web-Start or you can download it and 
start it with "java -Xmx512m -jar DMC-0.6.0.jar" command.
Make sure you use the Java from SUN.
