[Samba] Samba and MC/Service Guard

I believe that the HP Response Center has taken calls from Wal-Mart on 
CIFS/9000 Server (HP's supported version of Samba), so I think that at 
least some Wal-Mart sites are running CIFS/9000.

In any case, CIFS/9000 Server has MCSG scripts (.cntl,.conf,.mon) in 
/opt/samba/HA/ under active_active or active_standby.  In addition, 
there are detailed instructions on how to configure MCSG with the 
relocatable IP address and NetBIOS alias in the README file.  The same 
instructions are available in the CIFS/9000 Server manual.

You can get a copy of the manual at 
http://www.docs.hp.com/hpux/netcom/index.html#CIFS/9000.  You can 
download CIFS/9000 Server for free from
