    Excellent tutorial. Right to the point. I was just wondering if there is a way I can test the keepAlive part. I can’t shutdown my server, so I changing the IP address for fake ones in the keepAlive scrip does’t work or shutting down the KeepAlive service on primary doesn’t make secondary to wake up.

    Thank you

    Hi there!

    Thanks! for the tutorial, very helpful. Everything works fine with the exception of changing the state when the Primary server is down. My both servers (Ubuntu 12.04) are in different Azure clouds and I can connect by ssh one to each other.

    I’ve tried many changes but couldn’t get it to work. The bind in keepalived.conf is the local ip/hostname and the peer the the remote server. I shutdown the Master and the Slave keeps being passive. Any ideas?

    Thank you!
