Hi -

Actually not, the Debian Lenny version is still based on cman. But
thanks to your great informations, I've been able to compile the
debian's clvm package in order to use openais. I've been impressed how
it is easy to get both to work in opposition to cman and manual fencing
I always suffered to deal with! Exactly what I was looking for from
always for my xen servers sharing the same FC storage unit!

Feel free to contact me if you need instructions or want to get a copy
of the clvm deb package with openais for lenny on amd64.

Enjoy your week end!
