Hello Samuel,

I've done a lot of tests using different versions of VMware (Workstation,
Server and VI3/ESX 3) and everything works like it do when using 'real'
servers. In fact, I've now a production Samba cluster running one node on a
'real' server and the other node on a virtual one.


Hola Samuel

He hecho muchas pruebas de drbd sobre diferentes versiones de VMware
(Workstation, Server y VI3/ESX 3) y todo funciona como si de servidores
'reales' se tratara. De hecho, tengon en producción un cluster de
servidores Samba con un nodo 'real' y otro virtual y desde luego funcionan
sin ningún problema.
