Installs, but does not configure heartbeat.


Add management of configuration files, possibly with Chef search().

  • /etc/ha.d/
  • /etc/ha.d/haresources
  • /etc/ha.d/authkeys



  • Ubuntu 10.04+
  • Debian 6.0+



Installs the heartbeat and heartbeat-dev packages, and manages the heartbeat service. The recipe does not at this time manage any configuration.


On systems that need to be HA pairs, use this cookbook. Set up one to be the primary, and the other to be secondary with a clever role name, like "heartbeat-primary" and "heartbeat-secondary". To manage the heartbeat configuration files, modifications to the recipe to add template resources is required at this time. See Roadmap above.
