If I manage to get the stuff for work done in a sane amount of time tonight, I'll try a CVS update on all three nodes and try it again.  Is there any debug or anything that I can enable to get proper info if it doesn't work?  Might as well get as much info out of it as we can if it doesn't work.

Oooh - that would be interesteding, especially if my idea with DRBD in the backend was workable - you could end up mirroring between the x86 and sparc, as well as failing over between them.  Suddenly it gets very interesting.



I think I'll take a backup of the data on the gfs partitions before I do this. :)
