Hi Jean,

thank you for this document, it seems highly educational. Could you please 
verify if I understand correctly:

- you use LVM to build your DRBD resources on (not the other way around)
- you use a DRBD resource with a OCFS2 filesystem on to offer the ISO's and 
config files on both nodes for every DomU
- for each DomU you create a seperate DRBD resource that is allowed to be dual 
primary so you can do live migrations.

Am I doing all right?  ;-)
