This cookbook does also include material from HP Serviceguard white papers written by HP's AvailabilityClusters Solutions Labs (ACSL) which are available externally athttp://docs.hp.com/en/ha.html(click onServiceguard Extension for RAC), and HP internally athttp://haweb.cup.hp.com/ATC/Web/Whitepapers/default.htm.
Within this cookbook, all scenarios are based on a 2 node cluster -node1 referred to as 'ksc' and node2as 'schalke'.
