>From what I can tell (small number of anecdotes), director
failover is mainly used for planned maintenance and so that
management can tell customers that their setup has redundancy.
I haven't heard any stories of failover working in production.

Does anyone have director failover in a production setup, when
directors have failed and changed over automatically and you've
only found out about it when the failover mechanism notified
you (rather than the customers notifying you)?

If so, I'd like to put the info into the HOWTO. Please let
me know what failed, what system you're using for failover,
and anything else of interest.

Thanks Joe
