Using dcm4che with drbd??


I have 2 servers machine A (primary) and machine B (secondary) configured with dcm4che, drbd and heartbeat.

I want to set up something like: when machine A is down, the client computers can still query machine B to get the studies. Are there any ways for machine B to "pretend" to be machine A? Say, machine B can somehow "acquire" the IP address and AE title of machine A, so that the client computers would recognize machine B as machine A without noticing that machine A is down?

Any help will be appreciated! Thanks a lot!

Thank you for your reply. I've configured my machines with similar set up, but it doesn't seem to work.

I didn't install Openfiler though, is it a major component for the dcm4che and drbd to work?

I've googled Openfiler but I don't really understand how it works. Can anybody help me, please?

You don't want to install openfiler just get the instruction how to install and configure drbd and heartbeat. Openfiler is a linux based NAS/SAN appliance
