I am working on a clustered fileserver using RedHat 9 + Heartbeat + DRBD 0.7.5 + Samba 3.0.9. I have been able to setup NFS and AFS fileservices so that a file copy survives a failover and the file is not corrupted (verified with cksum). Is this possible with Samba? So far when I failover during the file copy through Samba I get the following error: "Cannot copy <filename>:an unexpected network error occurred" I only miss 1-2 pings during the failover. I have my drbd mirrored directory as /smb and have linked /var/lib/samba and /etc/samba to /smb/varlibsamba and /smb/samba. In my smb.conf file I have the locks and logs directories set to /smb/locks and /smb/logs respectively. I have my service address on a dedicated ethernet interface and am failing over the MAC address along with the IP. I have set the smb.conf file to restrict to this interface. Any assistance would be appreciated.
