Im really just trying to understand the process at this stage.

We are testing to then run a xen server on the primary, with all the
virtual servers running on that primary, but with a low level
secondary as failover if/when that happens.

So, when something does happen, i was thinking of writing a some
scripts to do the failover, rather than heartbeat, as it entails
shutting down and starting up each virtual server - which takes some
time anyway.

I would greatly appreciate the lists comments here?
