Hotspare + IC-Radius/FreeRadius + MySQL.

forgive me if this cross-over question is partly due elsewhere - I really
do need some assistance here, or advice at least. Flame me at your leisure!
I have the following setup in mind: I just ordered the basic Scyld-Beowulf
CD from Linux Central to start testing next week, and I have inquired a
number of quotes for a 2-server mountrack situation, with RAID-1/5+
Hotspare configuration, on SCSI (probably Adaptec) RAID-controllers and
drives. I am planning to run Red Hat Linux 8.x as an OS, on which I
presumably can install all the necessary Scyld RPM's, or at least update
the software that comes with the (2001?) Scyld CD from linux Central.
The plan is to run a 2-server fail-over config running as a primary daemon
either FreeRadius or IC-Radius, which processes I plan to manage with the
cluster software from scyld. If it can be done I do not know - but the docs
suggest it may. The Radius will obviously do accounting and Authorisation /
Authentication for Radius clients coming from our link, and I will have a
MySQL database on both servers that will replicate the data involved.
Now I'm not the expert here, and would love any comments or pointers you
may want to give me - I am sideposting on all kinds of lists right now with
various questions, but the more the better I guess. I will feedback my
experience to anyone who may be interested, or write a readme afterwards.
If that means I am trying to re-invent the wheel, please let me know.
thanks so much folks!
