I am using Haproxy to load balance replicated mysql master servers. I am also using Heartbeat and Pacemaker for Active/Active ip failover with two virtual ips on the two load balancers for web server high availability. I used location in pacemaker to stay VIPs one on each load balancer and I'm using round-robin DNS domains pointing to VIPs to load balance the load balancers. Everything looks fine so far!
|LB1: | Round-Robin -->| 126.96.36.199 | Heartbeat Pacemaker | Haproxy | 192.168.1.1
| | | | |
|LB2: | Round-Robin -->| 188.8.131.52 | Heartbeat Pacemaker | Haproxy | 192.168.1.2

How to configure Pacemaker so that if Haproxy on any load balancer is corrupted, it should still work either using haproxy on another lb or moving both the vips to working haproxy lb node. I DON'T want Active/Passive BUT Active/Active configuration as running haproxy on both the lbs responding to mysql requests.
Is it possible to do with Pacemaker? Anybody know?
Any help is greatly appreciated!. Thanks!
That was a nice hint by
@Arek B. using
clone. I appended below line to pacemaker configuration but still couldn't exactly get what is actually required. I checked stopping
haproxy on both the LBs and it's automatically started by pacemaker but when I checked permanently stopping it(
/etc/defaults/haproxy, enabled=0), haproxy failed to start and in those case when it couldn't start haproxy, I want the resource(
ipaddr2) to be moved to another running haproxy lb. Any more hint?
