Fail-over is not the problem. The trouble starts when you
want to share the same directory from two different cluster
nodes at the same time. Without making Samba cluster-aware
this directly leads to data-corruption, even if you are
running on a cluster file system. Work is being done right
now to get there, but doing this fast is not easy.
