Excuse me, are you talking of the old Linux-HA which is often referenced
And what kind of two node cluster do you have? What software packages
have you set up already?
This is RedHat cluster suite, and it uses a fairly complex cluster
communication. If your cluster communication and all other communication
use the same network/nics, you might run into trouble if "other
communication" uses up your network bandwidth.
