I plan to put DRBD w/Heartbeat on a Debian (sarge) Postfix server w/ 

My question is this. Obviously one directory structure that I will be  
synchronizing (making a drbd block device) would be /home
However, although I would like to be able to synchronize all users  
and their passwords, and all postfix settings, that would mean  
making /etc also a drbd block device. But that's not possible now is  
it - or not advisable as I would be synchronizing files that are box  
specific (/etc/fstab, /etc/network/interfaces..., /etc/hostname, etc.).

An obvious solution would be an ldap server - but that is not an  
option for certain reasons. So, is there a way to accomplish this?

Also, have I left out any other directories that I probably should be  
synchronizing but just didn't consider?
