Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

2.0.8 from upstream?! That's _ancient_. Did you follow the threads on
the linux-ha list at all?

1.1.0? That's beyond ancient. 2.6.21 should have a much more recent
version included.

Did you apply the user-space heartbeat patches from the SUSE kernel tree
to OCFS2? Otherwise, Linux HA can't manage an OCFS2 filesystem

(They are not yet included in the OCFS2 upstream codebase.)

Your errors indicate you didn't. That will blow up.

So, why do you do something which doesn't work? IPaddr cannot be cloned.
IPaddr2 has support for cluster IP, but not IPaddr.

That's pretty certainly going to be simpler to debug, yes.
