Hi all,

the former thread about "Setting up OCFS2 and VMs" IMO got
too much focused on OCFS2 - so i would like to start fresh here
with some more global view in mind.

For all who want to read about the historically backgrounds of
clustering in the open source world, i think this is a good start:


It does *not* mention CTDB at all, but (probably) we need to add some
additional pieces to get CTDB running on a clustered file system...
(on different distros)

Cheers, Günter

Some extensive tutorial - but it also does not mention CTDB:
