I'd like to ask drbd users how they are keeping their linux config files in sync with their nodes. I was thinking of putting certain files from /etc on a drbd partition so that they are identical on both nodes. Though the problem is that the slave node becomes usless if it can't access /etc/passwd cos drbd can only be mounted on one node. I tried using rsyncd, where I have a folder with all the congfig files and I run a rsync daemon on the primary node. I put in the crontabs to run an rsync command to go every hour to keep the systems up to date. But I need to somehow make the scripts know not to run. I only need the salve node to run rsync. Are there any alternatives that you all are using? or perhaps perfected this rsync one?
