    Can you please include heartbeat drbd kmod-drbd packages When I try to install I get:

    --> Processing Dependency: kernel-i686 = 2.6.18-53.1.13.el5 for package: kmod-drbd
    --> Finished Dependency Resolution
    Error: Missing Dependency: kernel-i686 = 2.6.18-53.1.13.el5 is needed by package kmod-drbd

    And I do not want to update the kernel because I have sangoma card and then is going to be pain :)

    Thank you

    Gabriel

    I don't have an answer to your original question. But are you going to be nice and share you High-Availability Elastix Cluster setup with us?

    :p I would Imagine to be pretty straight forward two identical servers etc and sync from Primary to Standby every few minutes.

    :D

    There is a Spanish doco that is pretty straight forward in the wiki here http://www.elastix.org/index.php?option ... elastix_es

    There are a few things it doesn't cover but it is a solid enough start.

    For the real info on how to get started have a look at the DRBD official site http://www.drbd.org/start.html

    Be sure when searching for info that you date limit your results to the last year as V8 does things a little different.<br><br>Post edited by: DStirrup, at: 2008/03/07 19:36

    I have read the doc.
    The problem is that the files here http://repo.elastix.org/centos/5/ha/RPMS/repodata/ are not available.
    And if you try to install the packages using yum you get this dependency error pointed out by gabriel.
    Anyone knows where to download them??

    I encountered the same problem like you have. I posted it here:http://www.elastix.org/index.php?option=com_joomlaboard&Itemid=26&func=view&id=5281&catid=1&limit=6&limitstart=6

    Anyone could point where the packages have been moved?

    I will share with you guys :)) I want to build some howto stuff. Now I am really busy at work and also my girlfriend needs some attention. I have in mind to build few scenarios.

    1. High-Availability cluster with Heartbeat/DRBD
    2. Perfect PBX, file server with samba, vpn server, backup server for windows computers, firewall, dhcp server, dns etc :))
    3. 4 location with with IAX2 trunks over VPN.

    Ok guys I can see elastix admins don`t care about us anymore :))


    I create the files that you need but I don`t have where to upload. If anyone need it can email me at missnebun@gmail.com

    Hi gabriel,
    Thanks a lot for the files.
    I have installed them and I nearly got it.
    I spent 7 hours making installation scripts for the ha cluster.
    drbd is working and heartbeat too, but I see 2 main problems with the Elastix's howto. They don't include htppd nor hylafax in /etc/ha.d/haresources
    So when I shutdown the primary box, the secondary takes its place, but the web interface and the faxes don't work.
    I have added them myself, and I've put their folders in the drdb partition. I needed to add access in /etc/asterisk/manager.com to the real ips of the 2 machines, and it worked for some time, until I reboot one or two times. Then I get many errors because the drbd service starts too late, and asterisk, httpd mysqld and hylafax try to find their configs in an unmounted partition. I have tried to change /etc/rcX.d scripts to make drbd start previous to mysql, asterisk, hylafax, httpd, etc, and shut down the latest. But it doesn't work very well.
    Can you give me some suggestions?
    Do I have to change /etc/rcX.d scripts? Is that the right way?

    master.sh
    slave.sh

    grate job. I will show you how to built point to point vpn between location and how to create IAX trunks between sites over the vpn :) I don`t have time to create howto stuff but you are better then me on this :)) I use yahoo messengers and my ID is gabriel25ny so fell free to add me as a friend and we go from there :))

    Go to /etc/rc.d/ and you'll notice rcX.d folders. The X in those directory names represent runlevels. Go to the runlevel you want to edit and you'll notice a whole bunch of files in the format SXXservice and KXXservice. The S files represent startup files and the K files represent the kill files. The important thing to note here is the XX number in those files. Those represent the order in which those files are executed. Simply make the number higher or lower to move the service around in startup or shutdown.


    Hope this help and I will create the script anyway then I will have time to install DRBD.

    I have it working quite well now.
    You must change the scripts to your needs.
    drbd partition is /dev/sda3 ext you must create it previously.
    You must assign ips to the nodes 192.168.160.101 and 192.168.160.102, before running the scripts.
    I have done all my tests in vmware 6 using Elastix 1.0.9beta.
    You will need the file rpms.tar with the needed rpms compiled by Gabriel (Thank you!). If somebody is interested let me know so I can email them (9,35mb)
    Here are my latest scripts:

    master.sh
    Code:
    # Download and install rpms
    cd /usr/src/
    wget --no-check-certificate http://192.168.160.222/rpms.tar

    I have some problems with email and fax in Elastix.
    They are not stored in mysql databases.
    Can somebody tell me wich files and services should I include in the drbd disk for these to work??
    I have problems with hylafax too, so I haven't included the service in the heartbeat config files.
    I think it is because when you stop the service doesn't completely close all the fax subprocesses or something like that...

    Any help will be appreciated.<br><br>Post edited by: ramoncio, at: 2008/03/20 12:28

    Hi mesbah,
    I have tried to email you the files but I get an error saying it exceeds your mailbox limits.
    The zip file is less than 9mb.
    If you give me another email address with more capacity I'll send them to you.

    ramoncio,

    Awesome job on the scripts. They look clean and simple to implement. Are they working with the 1.1 ISO files still? Also did you get the fax and e-mail bugs worked out? I would love to get a copy if it is still working.

    Also, just a couple of minor suggestions. First off, what about changing the scripts to ask for the ip addresses of the master and slave boxes when the script starts? Also, utilizing ssh/scp, it should be possible to run both the master and slave scripts from the master server. This could even be put into a web front end, very easily I would imagine, by someone who is familiar with the web programming. (Although, running a script from a web page as root could get a little tricky.) This would make a slick, easy configuration of redundant boxes and put Elastix even further up the top of the mountain as the best pre-configured Asterisk solution.

    Secondly, what would it take to make it so that the script wasn't so dependent on those exact versions of software? Could the config files be written in a patch style or maybe make the changes via a grep/awk line?

    I know enough to know that these are some pretty monumental steps to take, maybe more even in the idea of upkeep than original creation. However, I do believe that this would go a long way towards making Elastix and even Asterisk a much stronger force. Being a new Elastix downloader, I am not sure how much help I would be, especially since it has been a few years since I have done any serious programming. But I would do what little I could.

    Thanks,

    Greg Harris

    Hey Ramoncio,

    Can you please post a link to the files so others can download and use as well as for the Elastix developers to be able to integrate this feature into Elastix.

    Thanx.
