Re: [Linux-cluster] disjunct services in cluster



If you have a two-node cluster, and you don't want both services running
on the same node, then if one node goes down your whole cluster is
defunct.  So ... what's the problem with using "run exclusively"?  I
realize this locks each service to a particular node, but if you don't
want them running on the same node then there's no functional difference
between that and what you want for a two-node cluster.
