Certainly is, and the extras you get probably aren't worth it for what you're doing. I've got a single cluster running half a dozen services - and the better tools for doing manual failover between nodes and similar tasks seemed worth it. It's a minimal gain in the environment you're looking at. > The goal of the pxe boot is to save me a KVM if I screw up a boot process. > But I can easily do an automated network install on pxe. You could configure the servers to network boot - and get the pxe boot file handed out being a "localboot" as long as everything is OK. Then you can just change it to network boot to reinstall if necessary. Have you got a remote control power bar, or are you looking to manually power cycle them under these circumstances? > I have think about this first, but I think it would be much more > configuration and script making. Sure - it's not something I'd necessarily recommend - it just occured to me in the time I was typing the rest of the reply and it soundsed like it could be interesting... As well as splitting the network load a lot more fairly. Consider it more of a thought experiment than a real suggestion. I might even try and set it up myself using a couple of boxes and document it - as a stupidly complicated DRBD setup that works (if I can get it to) Graham
