Easiest thing to do is flip things around:

(You can do this by refs if you want).

  <service name="foo"/>
   <ip address="" monitor_link="1"/>
   <fs device="/dev/mapper/mpath0p1" ... mountpoint="/mnt/san" name="exportdb" .../>
   <smb name="share" workgroup="WORKGROUP"/>

That will cause smb.sh to create a samba config
called /etc/samba/smb.conf.share.  It will be accessible only via using netbios name "share" in workgroup "WORKGROUP", and
providing access to /mnt/san as the share name "exportdb", i.e., clients


... will see the contents of /mnt/san.

Since you intend to run a machine-specific Samba config (e.g. one not
managed by the cluster, presumably exporting local file systems or
printers, etc.), you should:

* Ensure that your /etc/samba/smb.conf is configured to *not* bind to
the address.  So, you'll have to set "bind interfaces="
yourself in /etc/samba/smb.conf.

* Generally speaking, machine-specific Samba shares should not usually
bind to cluster IP addresses or be started as part of a cluster service.
So, if you have machine-specific Samba shares you want started, you
should probably just chkconfig --add them rather than putting them in as
part of a cluster service.  Otherwise, clients accessing the share will
lose access any time you take down the cluster service (even though they
could operate independently).

The end result should look like:

+---------[ Server1 ]----------+ +--[ Server2 ]--+
|                   "share"    | |               |
|  "share1"      (floating IP) | |   "share2"    |
|   | |   |
|       |              |       | |       |       |
|       |              |       | |       |       |
|       |              |       | |       |       |
|  /mnt/local1      /mnt/san   | |  /mnt/local2  |
+------------------------------+ +---------------+
    (local)      (failover/HA)        (local)

The "share" pseudo-machine (including the "exportdb" export), the IP
address, and /mnt/san can be provided by either node, but the
local exports may only be provided by specific machines.  In the above
example, Server1 is providing "share", but you could move it to Server2
using the clusvcadm -r command.

Hope that helps.
