I also need to fail-over DRBD (i.e. so if the primary goes down the
secondary will notice this, mount that DRBD partition and start the
server which uses the files on it) - will LVS give me that by itself
or will I need something else on top of it to do that?
I got the impression that this what Linux-HA's heartbeat adds to the
plain LVS but it doesn't work for me.

I'm really not concerned about GUI's - I'd rather edit config files
manually if they are documented well enough.
