Actually, it's not much harder than that. The only step you're
missing is running pwd_mkdb on the files after they've been
copied, you can easily add that to your failover process.
Although, it may be worthwhile to investigate kerberos or LDAP if there's
any chance at all that this might grow into a larger desire to replicate
