On heartbeat configuration switching back from DR_HOST(currently as primary) to MAIN_HOST(currently as secondary) fails, looses the MAIN_HOST Lan ip and while configuring MAIN_HOST Lan ip, it is showing that ip is already in use.

Version no : 2.9.0.14 onwards Note: Here drbd is properly configured. Syncing works fine. But heartbeat fails to perform its functionality(auto failover).

This is happening only where heartbeat service is configured. Since the heartbeat service configuration file namely

  1. /etc/init.d/authkeys
  2. /etc/init.d/haresources
  3. /etc/init.d/ha.cf

consists double entry of configuration set of lines. So Remove the duplicate set of lines carefully.

Que. Why there is duplication in heartbeat configuration file? Ans. Since the template files for heartbeat configurations contains duplication that result to the duplicate set of lines in actual heartbeat configuration files. So remove the duplicate lines from the below three mentioned template files.

  1. /mithi/mcs/components/mithi-drbd/binconf/defconf/server/authkeys
  2. /mithi/mcs/components/mithi-drbd/binconf/defconf/server/haresources
  3. /mithi/mcs/components/mithi-drbd/binconf/defconf/server/ha.cf
