i would like to find out how to set up virtual IP failover on windows 7. There are many online guides on linux heartbeat and pacemaker but i need configuration guides on how to set up virtual IP failover in windows 7.
My understanding of virtual IP failover: Virtual IP failover assures that if a node in the cluster fails, other nodes can assume the failed node's responsibilities.
My objective: If my loadbalancer fails, other nodes will take over the responsibility of the loadbalancer using virtual IP The end user would not notice any major difference.
OS - Windows 7
Load balancer - Apache2.2
Server - Apache Tomcat7.0.14
Database - mySQL server 5.1, mySQL clustering
