Is there someone around who successfully got cLVM on Debian/Lenny
Yes.  There isn't anything to set up on clvm, once you set up the
cluster itself.  There are usable guides on setting up RedHat clusters
(it doesn't matter the least you're running Debian), and it's totally
unrelated to Xen.

now that RedHat's cman is based on openAIS, i've seen that SLES11 clvm
skips cman, so you can simply install openais and clvm.  the result is
a much simpler stack than RedHat's.

would Debian packages work similarly?

Hi -

Actually not, the Debian Lenny version is still based on cman. But thanks to your great informations, I've been able to compile the debian's clvm package in order to use openais. I've been impressed how it is easy to get both to work in opposition to cman and manual fencing I always suffered to deal with! Exactly what I was looking for from always for my xen servers sharing the same FC storage unit!

Feel free to contact me if you need instructions or want to get a copy of the clvm deb package with openais for lenny on amd64.

Enjoy your week end!
