Simple failover cluster using UCARP on Ubuntu

Lazy Geek -:)

In this tutorial, I’ll show you the steps to create a simple failover cluster on Ubuntu using CARP. To make the things meaningful,we’ll create the cluster for Apache service but you can use it for any other service, which relay on IP.

Scenario:

Here is my Setup:

PrimarySrv: This is the main server, where I configured the apache and which act as Master (IP: 192.168.1.202)
