[torqueusers] ha-torque using DRBD

Daniel, Prakash,
This may indeed work now with the HA version of TORQUE.  I haven't had
the time or opportunity to work on it lately but have the same idea as
you Daniel.  The problem with TORQUE in tha past is as described by
Prakash.  But now that TORQUE, using the --HA option of 2.3.0+ versions,
allows you to have multiple entries in the "server_name" file, TORQUE
may no longer suffer from the same issues.

I tried this some months ago for Torque, but failed. Looks like, as
mentioned by Stewart Samuels in an earlier thread, TORQUE uses the
gethostbyname routine to identify the host and therefore, when
failingover, you eventually must have the failover node be identified as
the original system. Which is not the ideal thing to do in a heartbeat

would like to put /var/spool/torque/server_priv on a drbd volume, and
use heartbeat to stop/start torque during failover.

require shared storage.
	  Is anyone using DRBD & heartbeat in such a way ? How well does
it work ?
