Heartbeat and Pacemaker

Hi there,

I have to upgrade a system from RHEL 5.11 to 6.6 and am wondering if I need the pacemaker package.

We used to run:

To manage a 2 node system

Now that pils and stonith are deprecated, I notice the Heatbeat package includes the dependency cluster-glue-libs:

which in turn includes the pils and stonith libraries:

With that in mind, do I need pacemaker?

Many Thanks

If there are 2 nodes only in the system, pacemaker isn't necessary. If you have a plan to add more node into system, pacemaker is solution.


heartbeat, pacemaker, rhel 5, rhel 6.6, stonith
