The command provided makes the right work (I didn't tell anybody ;-). I started with 1.x style config as all the documents about drbd+heartbeat+nfs are based on this. I saw that one of main features of 2.x heartbeat should be resource monitoring, being able to cope with node failures, network failures such as full link failures or the cluster becoming partitioned, but also with failures of individual resources, so that in my second step I'm going to migrate to this config. BTW, I was also testing the primary-poweroff scenario and it didn't work. But this was caused by a severe bug in 2.1.3 heartbeat dopd component, as released at this time in CentOS 5.2. See http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=2875 http://hg.linux-ha.org/dev/rev/47f60bebe7b2 So I needed to recompile heartbeat. But it was not related with the scenario posted here, where all goes as you clearly described. In case anyone needs too.... while I'm writing, I see that 2.1.4 has just been released ...... fixing the problems... so I have also to see changes between 2.1.3 and 2.1.4.. '-) Thanks again.
