Re: [Linux-cluster] Basic Active Active File Server



Hi all

Well stripped out everything and started again and now cluster seems
to be up and running.

I believe that I had some ocfs2 drm issues (installed to test this
cluster using heartbeat) and this was preventing the cluster from
coming online cleanly

Thanks for all the help

Jay
