Hi all,

First of all, let me say that i'm a newbie with DRBD and not a high level
linux specialist...

I want to have a HA setup for my Intranet which is using PHP + MySQL.
(Joomla 1.6)

For that, i have 2 DELL servers with 5 HD RAID on which i installed a CentOS
5.5 with

I tried to install OCFS2, DRBD and Heartbeat as active/active. I'm at the
point where i can access to my drbd partition  /sda6, but i can't make both
boxes talk together.
I do have some errors will loading :
- mount.ocfs2 (device name specified was not found while opening device
- drbd is waiting for peer.... and i have to enter "yes" to stop the process

After reading a lot, i'm not even sure anymore if my first project is the
right choice...

Is the configuration i planned the best one for my usage or should i change
my plans for another setup with same result, that is high availibility ?

If it makes sense to continue with drbd , i will be back with some questions
about my problems...
