Hi, hearbeat does the same as I do in the following steps: drbd disconnect all drbd primary all mount /dev/drbd0 /var/lib/xen/images However, in a heartbeat environment, the xen images are also damaged. If the primary node fails, all xen images located in /var/lib/xen/images are inconsistent and not bootable. I can avoid this by using fsck on the images. But I don't know how use fsck on image files. Does anybody know this? Thanks!
