Hi Mike,

Could you elaborate on this ?

What kind of cluster do you have ?

Are you doing load balancing ? ou just fail over ?

How do diferent server access the same db ?

I have read that CS *could* be used (after some transformation, don't
know of wich kind) be used on clusters, but I thought it was experimental...

Can someone shed a light on this ???

see you !
