I am trying to setup Linux-HA (Heartbeat) on a new SLES 11 Server anyone know of a good step-by-step for this the site's docs leave a little to be desired...
I'm working on the same challenge, and here are two links that have helped:
Novell's documentation on HA, which is what you are already probably looking at:
Load balancing howto from Novell communities:
Download the SLES 11 High Availability Extension as an add-on from the Novell site. It was not grouped under Suse Enterprise Linux as I had expected, but was in its own category for download. Once HAE is added as a source, you can select Software Management, Patterns, and choose High Availability to install all packages at once.
Still working on the configuration part, though.
If you need DRBD, too - same thing.
That way you can use the old Heartbeat-Cluster-Stack (and DRBD8) without the need to buy a HAE licence.
