I have some cluster since the start of the FC using heartbeat(no pacemaker)/drbd and I am planned the upgrade from the FC17 to the FC18 and FC19.

But I see there is no more heartbeat on FC18 I checked the releases notes and the Net, I found only one paper about heartbeat is obsolete, nothing about the way the replace it.

Please what I need on FC18/FC19 to replace heartbeat/drbd ?

Best regards.

Thank you drbd-heartbeat is not heartbeat, this is the drbd resource agents for heartbeat, scripts used by heartbeat to start/stop drbd.

Thank you this is the document I found. Do you know if there is a document to how I can migrate from heartbeat/drbd to corosync/pacemaker/drbd ?

Best regards.

You need to check the heartbeat documentation to learn if migration is possible, and if it is, how to go about it. The cluster link that @baptistemm has provided might be helpful too.

After looking for a bit, it seems heartbeat was replaced by corosync, so you have to use that instead. From page

The heartbeat package. Upstream development has stopped and equivalent or superior functionality is provided by the Corosync package.
