 > Hi list,
> I have a situation where I would like to run multiple instances of Corosync, each 'group' on a number of hosts, with each instance providing HA for a dedicated service, thus allowing for benefits around change control, risk management, service/environment separation and the like. The hosts in question run nothing but Docker containers, with the Corosync (+Pacemaker) containers using host mode networking.
> Whilst I can change the UDPU port used by Corosync, a second instance (container) fails with a socket error. Here's the relevant logs:

Corosync is not designed for running multiple instances. But using 
docker is different story (it's more or less VM, so there should be no 

You can try to look what socket is already in use (for example use 
strace) but I believe main problem is shared /dev/shm. Can you try to 
mount fresh tmpfs to /dev/shm in docker container?
