Thanks Rainer, i'll take a loot at it.

Indeed i'm preparing it for production. We have pretty simple needs here 
that not require a huge architecture. It's only a high available NFS 
share providing read only applications. We do not require high capacity 
disks nor powerful servers.

you guys are telling me that RHCS are not able to work properly on this 
kind of architecture, it's pretty sad... I'll have to use heartbeat and 
DRBD instead. This solution is up & running really quickly. Plus, i have 
no NFS file handle error during the copy thanks to DRBD.

Am i the only one using RHCS that way? :)
