You want a simple 2-node MySQL cluster with failover? Why not go with
DRBD then, as everyone else would in that situation?

Sorry to say this, but as a co-author of that agent I'll say that that's
exactly the kind of feedback we strongly dislike, as it doesn't help us
at all improving the agent, or its documentation. So,

- What were you trying to achieve?
- What was your configuration?
- What went wrong?
- What were you unable to fix?

For the DRBD based approach (which I would highly recommend), do
consider taking a look at
We'll be happy to provide you with the virtual images used in this
tutorial, so you can set things up yourself in a cleanroom testing
