1. 1. 254 10. 1. 1. 253 auto_failback off the 1st line above tells Heartbeat to begin the ipfail software on either the first and backup server,6 and to restart or respawn it if it stops, utilizing the hacluster consumer created in the course of set up of the pulse RPM package deal. the second one line specifies a number of ping servers or community nodes that Heartbeat may still ping at heartbeat durations to make sure that its community connections are operating effectively. (If you're development a firewall desktop, for instance, you'll likely are looking to use ping servers on either interfaces, or networks. 7) observe when you are utilizing a model of Heartbeat ahead of model 1. 1. 2, you need to flip nice_failback on. model 1. 1. 2 and later enable auto_failback (the substitute for nice_failback yet with the other which means) to be both on or off. Now commence Heartbeat on either servers and try out your configuration. you need to see a message in /var/log/messages indicating that Heartbeat begun the ipfail baby customer method. test removal the community cable at the fundamental server to damage the first server’s skill to ping one of many ping servers, and watch as ipfail forces the first server into standby mode. The backup server may still then take over the assets indexed in haresources. Watchdog and Softdog The kernel has its personal solution to deal with a hung method, referred to as watchdog.

If watchdog thinks the kernel is hung, it could actually take drastic motion equivalent to a procedure reboot. in an effort to safeguard your high-availability server configuration from a server cling that explanations an interruption in companies even if the server dangle isn't detected through Heartbeat, you might want to let watchdog on your kernel. notice we're conversing a couple of server hold the following and never an program challenge. Heartbeat (prior to Heartbeat unlock 2, which isn't but to be had as of this writing) doesn't video display assets or the purposes less than its keep watch over to work out in the event that they are healthy—to do that you should utilize one other package deal equivalent to the Mon tracking procedure mentioned partly IV. 6 The /etc/ha. d/ha. cf configuration dossier could be an identical at the fundamental and backup server.
