I know this page.
The picture in there shows that the ldirector have seperate IPs.
But I have ldirector directly on the real servers.
Furthermore I've bought the package SLES11 HAE and it shipps pacemaker instead
So some parameters are not available anymore etc. etc.
And if I refer to this page and set the arp settings like described, the
cluster does not respond anymore.
These are the facts I do not use the package but only ldirector at the moment.
As Simon explained me before - arp entries should look different on ldirector
server and on real server.
Novell itself has not enought knowledge in their product to support me - this
means quite a lot.

Betreff: Re: [lvs-users] is it possible to have ldirector and real cluster
server on same physical machine?
maybe this will help you:
I used this howto for a cluster with 3 servers and ldirectord running in one at
