Hmmm...there shouldn't be a requirement that lha-md should always be
available from an IPaddr resource. I mean the end-user should be given an
option of creating an IPaddr resource to manage the lha-md resource.
Another thing: is a single-daemon good enough? Maybe running an lha-md
daemon on each node is better, where they communicate vi HBcomm API. For
instance some admin operations can be done on one node(i.e. adding a node
where the underlying CIB handles the cluster-wide distribution and
notification of the node) but some operations must be cluster-wide where
they is no underlying layer to handle such operations. A simple command such
as "shutdown cluster" will need to run 'shutdown -t now' on each member.
So unless management operations are delegated to a cluster-wide daemon(i.e
CRM), I think it will be better to design lha-md as a multi-node resource(if
that is possible).
