I'm working on setting up to machines that will be using CARP to provide
fail-over, and I was wondering a couple of things:
1. How do you determine if the current box is the master? I need to
have each machine do certain things at startup depending on whether or
not it is the current CARP master.
2. How to force a box to become the CARP master? Suppose I want to take
the current master offline to do regular maintenance, but I don't want
to do so by rebooting the current master. A controlled switch of the
CARP master to the hot-spare box is what I'd like to be able to do.
3. How to run a script when the hot-spare becomes the CARP master?
Any insight or suggestions as to how I might do these things would be
