Goal

How do you setup a two node cluster using Content Server that will be installed on a UNIX or LINUX operating system that uses a High Availability (HA) Storage Area Network (SAN) for the shared filesystem?

Background:

This article provides a step by step example of how to set up a cluster configuration. This example configuration, uses an HA SAN-based shared file system, the Apache web server (also applies to Oracle HTTP Server and IBM HTTP Server), and a LINUX operating system.
