I am not sure what you mean, i do not use VMware... i have 2 machines, Stewie(Primary) and Megs(Secondary) These servers run on Debian Etch... I have 2 servers set up in a lab environment for testing before i install on production systems. I am using a Serial cable between the two for the heartbeat, and using GigE for the other NIC, for regular communication and the replication... I added the baud rate option as per the blog you mentioned to me. I can ping and ssh to either of these 2 servers,,, i am using 192.168.5.0/24 as my test C class.. This morning however i think i go it working as i added the baudrate to ha.cf and and put back heartbeat to start via regular rc.d start after boot. However i have a question(s) With a 2 node configuration what should be the proper procedure for rebooting the Primary and or secondary? Once a reboot has occurred, what amount of time should it take for the primary to mount the files system and start the services? Is there a way to calculate based on my ha.cf file? Sorry for any confusion... and thanks for your reply its very much appreciated... Have a warm day, its -20 C here in Montreal! :) Rob Morin Dido Internet Inc.
