Re: [Linux-cluster] Samba Statefull Failover



Hi Abhijith,

The planned setup for us is to host Citrix / Windows users home directories on the shared storage, contained within these directories is some Lotus Notes config files (address book etc) and notes throws a canary whenever there is a break in connection to these files and does not attempt a re-connect, and as a result I was hoping to be able to fail over the file locks. The directory as presented to the Citrix clients fails over flawlessly, the OS reconnects to the new server and you would never have known that the backend has moved, but Notes, errors all over the place, clicking out of error messages (x12) very visible, very irritating, and horrible in a demo of your new file server with your manager!

I also seem to be getting clients disconnecting from the node that I am not stopping the service on, but this may just be me, I will re-test tomorrow.

thanks for the feedback

Jay
