CARP Preemption in RELENG_1 Snapshots
i have 2 Questions about CARP-Setup:
1.) Is it possibly to setup a Carp Cluster with 2 different Serverhardware, roughly the same Hardware? Or it is a requirement to setup a cluster on the same Hardware. For example, the same NIC´s but different HDD or RAM and CPU?
2.) On my test in VMWARE the CARP Cluster with the RELENG_1 Snapshot (21.02.2007) works fine, but i haven´t found the option "Preemption" in the CARP Settings. Is "prreemption" in the new release needless?
Thanks and Greeting from Germany
You can use competely different hardware (even a cluster between a wrap and a badass-server-machine will work).
Preemption is now enabled by default behind the scenes. The tutorial was not updated regarding this.
Thanks a lot
