Sure, at the moment its only a testing platform. I took two
MySQL-Servers which are configured as master-master. So writing on both
databases is possible and is synchronized. I found a good step-by-step
guide under:


I configured a very simple setup for heartbeat to share one VIP between
both servers for client connection. So a kind of mysql-test is needed to
check if the database is online on the "normal" IP-Adress. If not the
VIP should be switched to the other server. I found a kind of
nagios_mysql_check usefull.

The openser-servers are connecting only to the vip address. Read and
Write are working on only one database. This should be enough for a
small environment.

Why no master - slave? I found it to complicate to make a slave to a
master by skript.

Why not the "normal" setup (drbd with mysql and heartbeat)? I looks to

But! I have no idea how it will work in a real world.
