yea, that is perfectly ok. I only mentioned it because in case you do
not want to have to take care about syncing files in a special way, but
you only want to have a HA server which is completely mirrored, you can
use a mirrored virtual machine (where you put all your HA services in
the virtual machine - then you don't have to take care about syncing
config files, etc, ...)

but when csync2 fits your needs - perfect ;-)
