Frequently Asked Questions for Heartbeat Version 2

How Do I Write an OCF Compliant Resource Agent?

The OCF RA spec can be found here:
http://www.opencf.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/specs/ra/resource-agent-api.txt?rev=HEAD

Is my Init Script Compatible with Heartbeat?

Init scripts are handled as LSBResourceAgents. Problems with them are quite common and the LSBResourceAgent page contains a series of steps to help you determine if the script is usable or not.

How do I know Heartbeat is installed correctly?

You can check your Heartbeat installation by running /usr/lib/heartbeat/BasicSanityCheck
