OK thanks a lot ;

I read that It was not a good thing to set /var/run in the mirooring partition!
Do you know why?

But I did it -

I found the problem:
I stopped SAMBA, removed the wins.dat, modified smb.conf in order to authorize only eth0:0
(Cluster's IP) and restarted SAMBA.
Everything is working well now (and with /var/run/samba in /share) ;-)

I had to move /var/run/samba as well before samba worked in a cluster.
