I don't do MySQL, but do use rsync, works great.

Used to keep 4 servers in sync this way until I got the quad cores.

Really helps if the servers are exactly the same, you don't need to tune for the slowest one then.

I rsync the entire /etc/MailScanner directory and let the MailScanner "Restart Every" pick up the changes.

Subject: 2MX server Mailscanner solution.


I am looking to create a 2 server mx solution for my MailScanner

I have been reading the backlog on the list and have decided on a path.

1. Install 2 MS servers. 
2. Configure them to connect to a 3rd Mysql Db server.

I will keep the config in sync by running rsync between the hosts.

Does this seem like a good solution?
