To start the LVS cluster, it is best to have two root terminals open
simultaneously or two simultaneous root open ssh sessions to
the primary LVS router.
In one terminal, watch the kernel log messages with the command:
tail -f /var/log/messages
Then start the cluster by typing the following command into the other terminal:
/sbin/service pulse start
Follow the progress of the pulse service's startup in
the terminal with the kernel log messages. When you see the following
output, the pulse daemon has started properly:
gratuitous lvs arps finished
To stop watching /var/log/messages, type
From this point on, the primary LVS router is also the active LVS
router. While you can make requests to the cluster at this point, you
should start the backup LVS router before putting the cluster into
service. To do this, simply repeat the process described above on the
backup LVS router node.
After completing this final step, the cluster will be up and running.
