Stuck trying to use Piranha and LVS

Is this networking? Is this server? I figured networking works...

Anyway, I'm trying to get LVS up and running on CentOS 5.3 x86-64. Everything setup fine and went according to documentation here:

Except when I actually go to start the pulse service, I get the following error:

Starting pulse: pulse: no active lvs services defined in /etc/sysconfig/ha/ [FAILED]

This is my first adventure into using LVS for load balancing, so I'm not sure where to go next. For reference here is my lvs.conf:

serial_no = 26
primary =
primary_private =
service = lvs
backup_active = 0
backup =
backup_private =
heartbeat = 1
heartbeat_port = 539
keepalive = 6
deadtime = 18
network = nat
nat_router = eth0:1
nat_nmask =
debug_level = NONE
monitor_links = 0
syncdaemon = 0
virtual {
     active = 0
     address = eth1:1
     vip_nmask =
     port = 80
     use_regex = 0
     load_monitor = none
     scheduler = wlc
     protocol = tcp
     timeout = 6
     reentry = 15
     quiesce_server = 0
     server {
         address =
         active = 0
         weight = 1
     server {
         address =
         active = 0
         weight = 1
Thoughts or opinions?

dear lord, the answer was staring me in the face. On the main Piranha page on the Virtual Servers tab, you have to click the radio button next to the virtual server and click the "activate" button. That changes the entry from this:

virtual {      
    active = 0
to this

virtual {      
    active = 1
I still can't get packets through, but at least the service is now running.
