What you mentioned above is what I want to do. IE:
S70(1) Running production environment with dce mounted file systems as
hacmp resources ( /var/dce /etc/dce /var/cic_clients) etc .
S70(2) Running test environment with all dce info in root directories.
In the event of production failing, the test environment on the standby
machine will shut down and the production machine will start up
mounting it's DCE filesystems over the local dce directories.
Will this be able to work ??
