How to add static DNS in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Please refer to this tutorial for adding the static ip address in Ubuntu 12.04.

Simple failover cluster using UCARP on Ubuntu

In this tutorial, I’ll show you the steps to create a simple failover cluster on Ubuntu using CARP. To make the things meaningful,we’ll create the cluster for Apache service but you can use it for any other service, which relay on IP.

SecondarySrv: 2nd Apache Server where I configured the apache exactly like on PrimarySrv (IP : : Virtual IP address,created using Ucarp.
