Hi Raoul,

We're trying to setup a HA SMTP Relay, so having pacemaker stop/start
the services as it passes the work over to the other machine, should
Postfix fail...  Is there a better way to allow an HA SMTP relay?

It's running under VMWare, having two different guests, on two different

I've attached the output you've requested. :)

There is no syslog file in /var/log .

i would need the logfiles. please use hb_report to generate a report!
something like:

   hb_report -f $start -t $end /root/hb_report_postfix/

where $start is before and $end is after the problem occurred.

please also do a quick

   grep alternate_config_directories /var/log/syslog

and attach the output.

as a side note: why do you want to manage the main postfix instance
via pacemaker?

you do realize, that - unless you setup a clone, you will not
receive any emails (e.g. output from cronjobs, etc.) from
the secondary node?
