[Samba] Samba 4 Clustering

As far as I know, Sun Cluster 3.1 can natively cluster (fail-over) Samba
Of course this is only available for Solaris (sparc or X86).
Another this can be done with Veritas Cluster Server (Solaris is for sure, but
I think Linux is also supported) with Application agent, as described here
Is that what the question was?
