Hi philu1,

> The HA package seems quite heavy-weight when ip_vs is the one missing dependency. Is there an alternative to installing the SLES HA package (or is it not as heavy as I perceive)?

Actually, that's more of a licensing question. Because technically, you can limit yourself to only install the according kernel (and its modules) plus whatever else might be needed for ipvs. OTOH, HAE is a non-free SLES add-on.
