Version details: Cloudmin Pro 8.3, Webmin 1.770
I have two hosts,
swarm, on which I host VMs.
murder is running cloudmin.
swarm is configured as a slave DNS server for the cloudmin domains.
I finally thought it might be a good idea to have a backup cloudmin host, so I set up
swarm per the documentation as a cloudmin replica. Doing this process broke the fact that
swarm was set up as a DNS slave server. Additionally, the "List Managed Systems" function against the cloudmin replica did not show any of the hosts for murder, although I did see that their configs had been replicated over in
/etc/webmin/servers. I assume this is what the docs mention about the replication behavior when a cloudmin master is also hosting VMs.
I decided that I didn't like that set up, so removed cloudmin from
swarm and fired up a KVM guest (
aerie) on another physical host and had that become a replica of
murder. Now, when I look at "List Managed Systems" on
aerie, I see all of the instances. However, all of the ones hosted on
murder say that they're hosted on
aerie. Is this the expected behavior? Is it a best practice to have the cloudmin master (and replicas) on nodes that do not host any VMs?
