I believe I have written; last summer and fall most likely. In fact, I
requested the features in this patch.

Search the archives (and fix the links :)

Once we're ready to roll out Samba 2.0.6 (or 2.0.7) with this patch I'll
re-write the scripts we use and do a write up on Samba and HA.

BTW, the key feature for HA is the ability to bind to specific
interfaces addresses. NFS has no such options on Solaris... :(
