By Active/Active I mean node1 normally controls volume1 (on the RAID),
node2 controls volume2. If node1 fails, node2 mounts volume1, and
exports those directories as well. I'm using a virtual IP for each node
In this configuration, neither node mounts exported directories from the
other node, so no cross mounting is going on.
The original haresources was my initial stab at getting it working,
which it did (sort of). The nfs::node1 bit is the nfs resource script
from Matt's page. Here's what it looks like with both volumes.
node1 192.168.0.50 LVM::/dev/storage1 \
node2 192.168.0.51 LVM::/dev/storage0 \
I haven't had any luck getting this configuration to work.
