Hi Andreas -

Everything seems fine. I responded to Andrew in relation to what I'd
asked Dejan.
(Regarding failover w/ no network connectivity)

We use the R1 version of heartbeat / ldirectord as follows:

On our DMZ segment:
2 nodes (running hearbeat w/ ldirectord) connected via serial
2 webservers running apache w/ content on NFS

One of the 2 nodes says 'I have addresses'
(which map to either of the 2 webservers via ldirectord)

Each of the 2 webservers would have 10 loopbacks (lo:0 - lo:9)
configured for that address range.

Each unique request that arrives should be sent to each webserver in
turn via round robin using ldirectord.

The idea was that I'd get redundancy in the cluster w/ heartbeat and
load balancing in the web servers via ldirectord. In the real world it
works most of the time - sometimes the round-robin doesn't work at all
or one of the nodes will go right up it's backside - but generally
it's pretty effective.
