Description Johnray Fuller 2003-03-17 18:33:45 EST
Piranha or ipvsadm should be modified to automatically load the ip_vs_ftp module
when clustering FTP using the NAT topography.

Cc'ing Valerie Rodgers since she is doing the next revision of the documentation.

Comment 2 Mike McLean 2003-03-17 19:01:35 EST
Well, some users might prefer not to load this module, so I'll need to make it a
(piranha) configuration option.
Comment 5 Johnray Fuller 2003-03-18 16:44:40 EST
Hey Mike,

I meant to imply that the option *can* be switched on if clustering FTP using
NAT, which make it seem more like a Piranha thing (as you said). That's why I
filed it against piranha, not ipvsadm :-P

Also, I should mention that the piranha/ipvsadm packages were left out of
Bugzilla for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Beta's bug submission page.

Refer to the following URL for details:


You may want to be sure other packages related to Piranha/clustering were not
inadvertantly left off.

What about looking for an FTP service using something advanced, like,
er, grep, and loading the module from the initscript for now?
