DRBD Management Console 0.6.0

Hi,

This is the next DRBD-MC beta release 0.6.0. DRBD-MC is a Java GUI that
helps to configure DRBD/Pacemaker/Corosync/Openais/Heartbeat clusters. It is
compatible with Heartbeat 2.1.3 to the latest and greatest Pacemaker with
both communication stacks and DRBD 8.

Along couple of visual improvements, some missing Pacemaker options and some
bugs were fixed. I think that now is about the time, when although you can
still shoot yourself in the foot with DRBD-MC while configuring and managing
your cluster, you would probably shoot yourself more without it. :-)

This release includes something that will be GUI for cluster-aware virtual
machines. It is now possible to set some attributes and see some hardware of
VMs if you have some on your cluster. Here is the screenshot:

You can get DRBD-MC here:

http://oss.linbit.com/drbd-mc/drbd-mc-0.6.0.tar.gz
http://oss.linbit.com/drbd-mc/DMC-0.6.0.jar

You can start it with help of Java Web-Start or you can download it and
start it with "java -Xmx512m -jar DMC-0.6.0.jar" command.
Make sure you use the Java from SUN.

I've just discovered a not critical but quite annoying bug in 0.6.0 release,
where internal guiid would be saved in cib. This is not a problem for the
cluster, but if you use crm shell as well, it would complain loudly about
this parameter. You can simply remove the "guiid" paramater in crm shell
every time you save the configuration, only to get it back in DRBD-MC.

In order not to be annoying for very long I've just released DRBD-MC 0.6.1
with just that bug fixed.
