Heartbeat like IP-Takeover

Author: Stephan  |  Category: Linux, Netzwerk, Sonstiges

Heartbeat Based Clusters are a fine thing but even clusters can crash. In this case you may have to bring up the ressources manually. With

ip -f inet addr add brd dev eth1

you can add the VIP manually but you have to clean the ARP Caches manually to have sucess. You clean the ap caches with this command:

arping -c 4 -A -I eth1

A strange rdiff_backup error and its solution

Author: Stephan  |  Category: Linux, Netzwerk, Sonstiges

After a longer migration of rdiff_backup repository (4 Weeks) I got this strange error

What happened ? Because of the very long Migration of the repository more than one current_mirror Statusfiles had been synced.
In the errormessage above it had been two files .
how to solve ?
Simply delete in all rdiff_datadirs all current_mirror* files except the newest one and your rdiff_backup is running again
