Re: [Linux-cluster] 2 node cluster w/o shared storage and custom script

Try this link (that you may already know !)

This is in the your script resource metadata,  under the <action/>
section, you can define the interval at which rgmanager will launch
the "status|monitor" action.

It will have to return 0 if everythng is fine. (this is the LSB
compliance thing)

same as above, check the interval metadata settings
