Chapter 4. Configuring Red Hat High Availability Add-On With Conga

This chapter describes how to configure Red Hat High Availability Add-On software using Conga. For information on using Conga to manage a running cluster, see Chapter 5, Managing Red Hat High Availability Add-On With Conga.


Conga is a graphical user interface that you can use to administer the Red Hat High Availability Add-On. Note, however, that in order to use this interface effectively you need to have a good and clear understanding of the underlying concepts. Learning about cluster configuration by exploring the available features in the user interface is not recommended, as it may result in a system that is not robust enough to keep all services running when components fail.
This chapter consists of the following sections:
