Hi there.
I'm testing the building of a stateful firewall HA (active-pasive) cluster
using "conntrackd" (netfilter project) with heartbeat + pacemaker.
I have already working my virtual ips resources in the cluster, following
the "cluster from scratch" document in the pacemaker documentation.

Now, I'm in the moment to handle with conntrackd as a resource. As first, i
didn't find any pre-established resource-agent after the basic installation
of all the software from the official debian repos.
Then i found in the linux-ha mail list a RA script, that i copied into
As soon as I add the resources for having conntrackd working in the cluster,
the others resources (virtual ips) dissapear.

Have some error messages I can't understand:
NOTE: My nodes are "fw1" and "fw2".

This is the script

Any idea? Thanks!
