    Tinkering

    Set up a 2 node cluster today with SLES 11 HAE pack.
    Pretty interesting stuff. Currently just fails over
    a running apache instance. Going to try and figure out
    using DRDB next. SLES docs are pretty good if a bit
    sparse on details.

    sparse details makes it more fun right??
    maybe Novell are preparing for a microsoft takeover and are adjusting
    their doco standards to align with microsoft best practice??

    ie giving you half of everything you need...

    It's kinda funny really. People treat HA like it's some sort of black art,
    which it really needn't be, it would just reduce consulting fees if it
    wasn't. In the same way IBM's virtualization took 50 years to be
    popularized, so will HA be someday when someone decides to take it to the
    masses. It's getting there, just a bit too cryptic at this point.
    Fortunately I have my Captain Crunch Decoder Wheel(tm).

    I don't suppose you'd consider modifying it for SLES and creating a
    Cool Solution? I think a lot of people would find it very helpful.

    I have to see if I can get a download of SLES to use

    I have not logged into the Novell site in years.

    Looking at a SLES install it shows how long it has been since I
    installed sles. :-)

    Do you want a from empty machine or just the drbd part of this?

    What I would like to see is a from empty but with some descriptions as
    to what the paramaters are for/doing. That is kind of elusive, there are
    plenty of things outlining RA's for example but no practical examples.
    It has taken me far longer to get just basic things working than I think it
    should. I feel like I am recreating the wheel, and I know in the end
    someone will be like, "Well why didin't you just do this..."

    There is a DRDB plugin in YaST if you install the HAE package.

    Pretty sure I can decipher what you do via CLI and input it into the GUI.

    I don't see any point in going through a basic install. I assume anyone
    interested is drbd can handle that. What I like about the Cool
    Solutions is they always include a few pointers and tips that are not
    obvious from reading the documentation.

    This would be -your- project, drawing from -your- experiences. It's
    pretty much up to you how little or how much you would like to include.
