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

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 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 

Have a warm day, its -20 C here in Montreal!
