Thanks Martin,

of course, this will work :-) The simplest solution is what I think of
last :-)

But... well, the services are not switched over regularly, but only in
case of havoc :-\ Last time, it was a choking SAN/OCFS2 connection...

The service is our SAP router software, and it runs on the VM where
the Solution Manager is running on. Only in case of really bad
circumstances this VM is shut down and the other VM is used to
continue the service ("Emergency! Do something! And QUICK!", you know
this...). It is almost sure that I will forget to disable the service
on the "bad" platform or to enable it on the "good" one. I'd prefer an
automatic solution because of this ;-)

And I am not allowed to use something like heartbeat/corosyc/... on
these systems.
