The first of a new series of step-by-step guides for Pacemaker.
This installment covers installation, the creation of an active/passive cluster and its conversion to active/active.
Technologies used include:
- Fedora 11 as the host operating system
- OpenAIS to provide messaging and membership services,
- Pacemaker to perform resource management,
- DRBD as a cost-effective alternative to shared storage,
- OCFS2 as the cluster filesystem (in active/active mode)
- The crm shell for displaying the configuration and making changes
- Apache as the example service.
The PDF is available from our Documentation page or directly via http://www.clusterlabs.org/mediawiki/images/9/9d/Clusters_from_Scratch_-_Apache_on_Fedora11.pdf
Future guides are anticipated to include MySQL, mail servers and asymmetrical clusters. Feedback and suggestions for additional topics are welcome.
