I saw that. That's what initially got me thinking that I might need
to look elsewhere for a different HA solution.
The biggest thing is that the DB is for a hosting company. This
company could add databases for their clients upon a request and at
any point during the day. The current master-master that I've got set
up and working in my test environment requires the MySQL server be
restarted because you have to manually add the databases you want to
sync to the my.cnf file.
Then upon rebooting the 'slave/master' you have to manually add it
back to the slave in order to receive it's updates again.
I'm not sure if this is the best way or not.
Do you use the drbd method? Are any of these things accounted for in
