I’m setting up an active-passive Asterisk solution on Debian Jessie platforms. I’m using heartbeat package.
As I’m not yet familiar with either systemd or heartbeat, I’ve got a couple of questions:
1. At the moment, I’m using /usr/share/heartbeat/hb_standby or
/usr/share/heartbeat/hb_takeover scripts to both :
– allocate “floating” IP addresses to active server
– start/stop asterisk daemon.
Is this appropriate ? What would you recommand instead ?
2. My /etc/ha.d/haresources file contains:
machine1 192.168.1.3 asterisk
With this, I can see that asterisk daemon is correctly started and stopped when hb_standby/hb_takeover commands are typed but “service asterisk,status” is a bit misleading with:
service asterisk status
● asterisk.service – LSB: Asterisk PBX
Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/asterisk)
Active: active (exited) since lun. 2015-10-19 18:02:58 CEST; 41min ago
Process: 19576 ExecStop=/etc/init.d/asterisk stop (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
Process: 19583 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/asterisk start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
How can I best improve this and configure heartbeat to use “service asterisk start/stop” ?
