direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

thanks for this

I can fail over, and did plenty of tests with programs writing on the 
shared nfs and rebooting the primary and they were all satisfactory, but 
for Murphy's law  (and perhaps cosmic rays!) for once that it had to do

That's weird, your first message arrived directly to me not through the 
ML, I just replied to that but I have to confess that I am noticing some
